Clare, known as the Banner County, is the seventh largest county in Ireland. Located in the Province of Munster, it is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the west and the Shannon River on the east. The Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and the megalithic Poulnabrone Dolmen are located in Clare. County Clare is also renowned for its traditional Irish music.

County Clare is filled with thin places and you can learn more by checking out my two blogs on this area: I’m Picking up Good Vibrations (in County Clare) and Rock and Water. Listed below are the thin places I found in this beautiful part of Ireland, generally from north to south:

Corcomroe Abbey
Bishop’s Quay
Fanore Beach
The Burren
Poulnabrone Dolmen
Kilmacduagh Abbey
Kilfenora Cathedral
Cliffs of Moher
St Brigid’s Well near Liscannor
Plains of Lahinch
Beaches at Spanish Point and Kilkee
and the Coast on the Loop Head Peninsula

Mapping my Journey identifies the locations of these thin places.
