Our guide book told us to take the R487 Loop Head Rd out of Kilkee and look for a turnoff to the right signposted “Scenic Loop”. Didn’t see it and ended up driving all the way to the lighthouse at the end. Fine if you...More

If you are in Co. Clare, it's worth taking a drive out along Loop Head. There is a lighthouse to visit (for a small fee) and very nice walks around the head.

Some people have written less-than-positive reviews about the lighthouse HERE. To be clear: reviews for the lighthouse can be found elsewhere on TripAdvisor…this is for reviews of Loop Head itself. We did NOT go into the lighthouse for a tour as we were there to...More

The drive to the lighthouse is worth every mile. The car park is free, as is the area around the light house, and the views are dramatic. A huge rock column detached from the mainland is a haven for ocean birds, and the path to...More

Visited here in May 2017. Great visit. The guides are very well informed and are very friendly. The views are fantastic. The walk around the perimeter of the head is a must!!!

A lot seems to be made of this area. It has some natural beauty, but if you expect to see it by driving the loop in your car, you will be sadly disappointed as views are not generally seen from the road. Suggest a walk...More

We drove to Loop Head, which is further west than the resort Kilkee. The roads are quite narrow, please follow the sign-posts and don't forget to visit the Lighthouse which affords wonderful views

We stayed in a beautiful AirBNB, about 300 years old but completely updated. Brennens Old Stone Cottage. There are other B&B's in the area. Wish I could be there right now!
