  Doolin "Castle"
by Bwana_Brown

If you wish, you can take one of the smaller side-roads off the main highway to descend down into the village of Doolin. We did this on our first afternoon there and came across this rather imposing looking building with a great view out over the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands (pierced by its tower in this photo). We were never able to find out much about this structure other than it is reputed to have been bought by a wealthy elderly American tobacco magnate who re-furnished it as a summer home.
