Local Activities

Dolphin Watching
The mouth of the River Shannon is home to Ireland’s only resident community of bottlenose dolphins who thrive in this safe habitat. The estuary provides the dolphins with a rich source of food and a safe habitat for mothers and calves and is one of only six such breeding communities in Europe.  The local dolphin
watch tours boast a sighting rate of 98% during the months of May to August and operate from the towns of Kilrush and Carrigaholt.

Doolin has its own excellent nine hole pitch ‘n’ putt course and Lahinch has two golf courses – the Castle Course and the Old Course are located just a 20 minute drive away.

Doolin is centrally located on the Burren Way Walking Route, which is a 26-mile (42 km) signposted walking trail from the town of Liscannor, along by the Cliffs of Moher, on to Doolin and into Ballyvaughan.

With its network of sub-marine caves Doolin offers some of the best diving sites on the west coast.

The Doolin Cave System was first discovered in 1953 and is over 10.5 km in length incorporating many active underground rivers flowing through the limestone.  Guided trips can be arranged locally.

Horse Riding
The Burren is an ideal region to discover on horseback and there are many options available including beach trails.

Within a ten-minute drive of Doolin there are two beautiful beaches – Fanore Blue Flag Beach with its fantastic sand dunes and shore fishing and Lahinch Beach that is popular worldwide with surfers.
