Things to do

Spend a lovely day – or a lot longer – in Clare, there is plenty for the whole family to do.

Put your walking boots on and enjoy a walk in the beautiful countryside whatever the weather. There are plenty of independent shops so you can indulge in some retail therapy – there are several places to search for an amazing antique. If you are looking for sport and activities then play golf or kick a ball around in the Park with your family and climb the steep Motte. For a more relaxing time have a beauty treatment or just sit in the Park and enjoy the view.

You choose – and have a wonderful time!
