From breathtaking natural scenery to traditional Irish music and dance, Doolin is a destination that should be on everyone’s bucket list. Wild Meadow Huts is in a central location making it a great base to explore Doolin and its surrounding attractions. We recommend booking for two to three nights and experiencing some of our below recommendations:

  1. The Cliffs of Moher: Perhaps the most iconic attraction in all of Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher are a short drive from Doolin. These towering cliffs rise up to 702 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, providing stunning views of the coastline and surrounding countryside. Visitors can walk along the cliff edge, visit the visitor center, and learn about the history and geology of this amazing natural wonder.
  2. Traditional Irish Music: Doolin is renowned for its traditional Irish music scene, with live music sessions taking place in pubs throughout the village almost every night of the week. Musicians from around the world come to Doolin to play and listen to the music, making it a vibrant and lively place to be. It’s only a seven minute walk to McDermott’s & McGanns pub from Wild Meadow Huts so no need to worry about driving if you’re having a pint.
  3. The Burren: Just north of Doolin lies the Burren, a unique and otherworldly landscape that is unlike anything else in Ireland. This area is famous for its karst limestone terrain, which is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna. Visitors can explore the Burren on foot, by bike, or even on horseback, taking in the stunning views and unique geology. We’re lucky that the Burren is only a 15 minute walk down a beautiful country lane from us. It’s a must for any guests staying at Wild Meadow Huts.
  4. Aran Islands: Just off the coast of Doolin lie the Aran Islands, a trio of rugged and beautiful islands that offer a glimpse into traditional Irish life. Visitors can take a ferry from Doolin to Inisheer, Inishmaan, or Inishmore, where they can explore ancient ruins, traditional fishing villages, and stunning coastal scenery. Doolin Ferry offers multiple sailing options from Doolin pier.
  5. Friendly Locals: One of the best things about Doolin is its friendly and welcoming locals. Visitors are sure to feel at home in this small and close-knit community, where everyone is happy to share a pint, a story, or a song.
