“The Harbour” is the departing point for boat trips to the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher.
The Great Stalactite, measuring 7.3 metres, was discovered in 1952. Doolin Cave claims that it is recognised as being the longest stalactite in the Northern hemisphere.
Doolin is a noted surfing destination. A break which generates Irelands biggest wave, ‘Aill Na Searrach’, is just off the Cliffs of Moher. The wave features in the movie Waveriders. Crab Island is also a local surfing spot.
As well as serving as an accommodation centre for visitors to the major climbing area of Ailladie, a short drive away, Doolin has its own less-popular sea-cliff rock-climbing area, with about 18 routesrecorded.
Like Ailladie, the cliffs are single-pitch steep limestone; however the rock is not of as high a quality, the cliffs are tidal, and access is not as easy. There are also several smaller inland crags scattered throughout the Burren region and some good bouldering to be found along the coast, most notably at Lackglass, which was first bouldered in April 2005.
Pubs in Doolin include Fitzpatricks, Gus O’Connor’s, McDermott’s and McGann’s. The Micho Russell Festival Weekend is held each year after the last Friday in February.
