Kilrush Town and Surrounds

Kilrush is at the centre of the rich and diverse coastal landscape of the West Clare Peninsula that offers the cleanest air in Europe. It is set in an unforgettable seascape featuring the lordly River Shannon, the islands of Hog and Scattery and the picturesque village of Cappa. The designation of Kilrush as a Heritage town recognises its legacy as a landlord estate town with a rich maritime tradition.

Beautiful beaches and an unspoilt natural environment surround the area. There is a treasure chest of exciting activities for both the visitor and residents alike.
