Tourism Ireland welcomes news that Co Clare features in renowned Frommer’s ‘Best Places to Go’ list

Published on : Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Pollock HolesCo Clare has been named one of the ‘Best Places to Go’ in 2018 by one of the world’s most reputable travel guidebooks, Frommer’s.

 

The Frommer’s team of editors and writers chooses locations they believe are the best holiday destinations for the year ahead. They cited Star Wars: The Last Jedi as one of the calling cards that led to the inclusion of Co Clare on the list, stating that “The rugged western coast of Ireland isn’t just one of the best places to go in the world; it’s among the best in the galaxy”.

 

The full list of places that made the Frommer’s can be viewed here.

 

“It is fantastic to see Co Clare listed in the esteemed Frommer’s ‘Best Places to Go’ list for 2018,” said Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland. “This well-deserved accolade will no doubt encourage travellers around the world to consider a visit to Co Clare next year. It also provides another hook for Tourism Ireland to continue to highlight Co Clare and the Wild Atlantic Way as an outstanding and unique holiday destination.”

 

Frommer’s also says that “County Clare is used to attention; tourists have been flocking to its majestic Cliffs of Moher and the eerie, stony plain known as the Burren for generations.”  Loop Head Peninsula is highlighted as being the place to “walk in the footsteps of Skywalker and company”, with the travel publication also saying that “you don’t have to look hard to find IMAX-worthy scenery at this wild, watery spot, from crescent-shaped Kilkee Beach at one end to the stately lighthouse topping the seaside bluffs at the other”.
