ODonohues Fanore County Clare
We spend a lot of time out and about in the Burren and the North Clare loop drive is a great way to see the area close-up no matter what the weather is doing.......
O'Donohue's Pub Fanore
........There are two sides to the drive, the inland part through the valley's and hills and the coastal section which offers miles and miles of ever changing vistas.
Now sometime along this route you are going to need to stop off somewhere and while a lot of people end up in Ballyvaughan we prefer the beauty and anonymity of Fanore which is a mere 20 minutes from Ballyvaughan.
Not that it's deserted or anything in Fanore we just like our comfort and this is the place to relax awhile, maybe have a coffee and a snack and just chill.
The problem with this tiny village is that if you don't know about it you can find yourself driving through it and then saying 'hey, that looked a nice place' and it is, so mark it on your map and make a point of stopping it would be a pity to miss it. Shore angling is big here as is walking the Burren trails and there is plenty of places to stay if the impulse grabs you.......
The shot was taken on a damp Sunday and is a view of the absolutely stunning O'Donohue's of Fanore shining brightly and invitingly in the Burren mist.
