"Ballyvaughan" Ballyvaughan by Ash59

Ballyvaughan Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 37 photos

Ballyvaughan is a pretty little village that sits in the north west area of County Clare, looking out over Galway Bay.

it consists of 3 pubs, 1 restaurant, 1 cafe, a small supermarket and a petrol station. It makes for an excellent touring base for the Burren and a few local touristy places but you really need to accept that you have to drive a ways to see other sites of Ireland.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great food, friendly people & lovely views
  • Cons:Long way from the accepted tourist sites of Ireland

    Maybe that place is far from the accepted tourist sites but look very worth visiting. Maybe that lack of tourists give that special charm to everything.
