The town of Doolin is the perfect place to either begin or finish your Irish vacation if you are utilizing Shannon Airport. It is about an hour and a half drive from Shannon Airport, and less than 2 miles from the Cliffs of Mohrer.  For either your first or last stop on your Irish sojourn you can drive to view the majestic Cliffs and then take the quick ride into the village of Doolin and spend the night enjoying their famous pubs, all reknowned for their traditional Irish music sessions. There are also several nice restaurants available offering fresh seafood.
