Doolin

Doolin is a coastal village in County Clare, Ireland, on the Atlantic coast. It borders the spa town of Lisdoonvarna, it is a noted centre of traditional Irish music, played nightly in its pubs, making it a popular tourist destination. There are numerous nearby archaeological sites, many dating to earlier. Doonagore Castle and Ballinalacken Castle are in the area; the area was classified as part of the West Clare Gaeltacht prior to the 1950s, maintains a connection with Irish-speaking areas - including via its maritime connection with the Aran Islands. The scattered village of Doolin comprises three sections - along with a harbour: "The Harbour" is the departing point for boat trips to the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher. There is a campsite nearby "Fisher Street" has O'Connor's Pub and several shops and hostels. "Fitz's Cross" has a hostel, two new hotels and another pub which opened in 2006 "Roadford" has McGann's and Mc Dermott's pubs, four restaurants, two hostels and a number of B&Bs.

Trips to Doolin Cave are run from here. The Aille River runs from the hills of the Burren down past Doolin to meet the sea; the small Crab Island is a short distance out from Doolin Harbour, barren except for the remains of a 19th-century stone constabulary outpost. The Great Stalactite, measuring 7.3 metres, was discovered in 1952. Doolin Cave claims. Owing to environmental protection measures, concurrent visitor numbers are limited to 20 per tour. Doolin is a noted surfing destination. A break which generates Irelands biggest wave,'Aill na Searrach', is just off the Cliffs of Moher; the wave features in the movie Waveriders. Crab Island is a local surfing spot; as well as serving as an accommodation centre for visitors to the major limestone rock climbing area of Ailladie, a short 8 km drive away, Doolin has its own less-popular sea-cliff rock-climbing area, with several routes recorded. Like Ailladie, the cliffs are single-pitch steep limestone. There are several smaller inland crags scattered throughout the Burren region, some good bouldering to be found along the coast, most notably at Lackglass, first bouldered in April 2005.

Pubs in Doolin include McDermott's and McGann's. The Micho Russell Festival Weekend is held each year after the last Friday in February. Doolin is one of three places with ferry services to the Aran Islands, which are visible from the town. A ferry service brings tourists from Doolin Pier to the base of the Cliffs of Moher; as Doolin is close to the Cliffs of Moher, a bus service between Galway and Ennis calls at both Doolin and the cliffs in each direction. Bus Éireann route 350 links Doolin to Ennis, Cliffs of Moher, Fanore and Galway. There are a number of journeys each way daily. Onward rail and bus connections are available at Galway. Two regional roads serve the village; the R479 connects the village both with coastal areas to the north and with Lisdoonvarna to the east. The R459 connects the village to the Cliffs of the Burren Way and the Inisheer ferry port. Musicians associated with Doolin, who have lived there or played in its pubs, include Micho Russell and his brothers Packie and Gussie, Sharon Shannon, Davy Spillane, Steve Wickham of The Waterboys.

Doolin is the main setting for the 2007 PlayStation 3 game Folklore. According to the game's storyline, the Netherworld, the world of the dead is a realm that can only be accessed from one place in the world, the sea-side village of Doolin; the Celtic band Gaelic Storm has a fiddle tune which references the town called "The Devil Went Down to Doolin" on their album Herding Cats.
