Location and Brief Description:
Doonbeg village is situated on the river of the same name on the W. coast of Clare, 6 miles N.-E. of Kilkee, 12 miles S.-W. of Miltown-Malbay, on the main road between them and 8 miles N. of Kilrush. It is a very neat little village - the houses being remarkably clean. It has adequate footwear, drapery, and grocery supplies, but accommodation is limited. Due to the surrounding low-lying country, the village suffers greatly from altantic winds during winter, while in summer the bogland air from the S. and E. mingled with ozone from the Atlantic is ideal for the seeker of health and pleasure.
