Things to do on Loop Head
This beautiful drone video was created by photographer Kevin Troy -
The Loop Head peninsula on The Wild Atlantic Way stretches out into the Atlantic ocean, it's furthest tip being the most westerly point of county Clare. To the south of the peninsula is the Shannon estuary, shipping channel, fishing ground, dolphin and wild fowl habitat. To the north, the violent Atlantic ocean batters the coastline and to the west lies America!
This stunning peninsula lies in the middle of The Wild Atlantic Way with panoramic cliff views, vast skies, abundant local seafood and your choice of aquatic activities. There are plenty of quiet beauty spots where you can pause and wonder at this unforgettable part of the world.
