County Clare has been fortunate in securing a number of excellent new Loop Walks as part of the Shannon Trails/Failte Ireland initiative. There are three in East Clare and one in Mid Clare.

Named after an ages-old local endearment for the unbridled breaking waves of the Atlantic White Horses is designed to be an intimate and luxurious hideaway with the power to carry you away to another realm.
