Take a Tour

Unspoiled and incredibly scenic, it is so worth taking the beautiful road trip from Kilkee out to Loop Head Lighthouse, part of the Wild Atlantic Way which takes you on a leisurely circle around the spectacular scenic coastline of Loop Head.

This drive will bring you to the village of Kilbaha, which as well as being home to the award winning ‘Kilbaha Gallery’, also takes in the ‘Bridges of Ross’ walk and the historic ‘Church of the Little Ark’; two locations highly recommended to visit. It takes in the guided tour to the top of Loop Head Lighthouse and a stunning walk around the headland.

The panoramic views of the ocean, with Kerry to the South and Galway and Mayo to the North, will, quite simply, take your breath away.

Family Friendly – Fabulous Beaches – Stunning Walks – Biodiversity – Sustainable – Super Communities

Delicious Food

Stop off at Keatings Bar & Restaurant in the village and sample their delicious menu, or at the nearby Lighthouse Inn and while in both places, you can take in their beautiful panoramic views of the harbour.

On your return, visit the beautiful fishing village of Carrigaholt – with its two working piers, its long sandy beach, its myriad of traditional Irish pubs and its award winning seafood restaurant. ‘The Long Dock’.
