Loop Head Cycleway

The Loop Head Cycleway passes our door so you could take 2-3 days on Loop Head with your bike starting at Kilkee. We can arrange accommodation in Kilkee and Kilbaha to facilitate this. We can also have your luggage taken from each point if that would suit you. Check out the packages page for more detail.

Farmers Market

Kilrush Farmers market (Each Thursday morning year round) provides a great selection of local produce to add to your unique experience in Loop Head. This market also extends to Kilkee on Sunday mornings during the summer.

Local Pubs

We have some lovely local pubs in the area. Check out Keane’s Pub in Lisdeen or any of the traditional Irish pubs in Carrigaholt (Carmodys, The Long Dock or Keanes). Further afield, Kilkee has some pubs with great character and a really nice pint of Guinness. Check out www.loophead.ie for more details on where to eat and drink in Loop Head.
