East Clare is one of the hidden treasures of Ireland where visitors still find the peace and tranquility for which the emerald isle is famous. Rolling hills, green fields, unspoilt lakes and streams, endless forests and bogs offer a serene but never
boring scenery - and it is central and not far away from all the major sights in the midwest of Ireland, including Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Bunratty Folkpark, Killaloe as well as Galway, Ennis and Limerick.
village of Feakle is a small pleasant village particularly popular with anglers and
sportsmen and also well known for its traditional music pubs and for
the Feakle International Traditional Music
Festival, which takes place in Mid-August
each year covering every aspect of
traditional music. Feakle is steeped in the tradition of Irish
music. Sons of Feakle, like Dr. Bill Loughnane, P.J. Hayes and Martin Hayes have
distinguished themselves in the famed Tulla ceili band.
