The Invitingly Cozy Town of Doolin in Ireland

A very pretty village on the west coast of Ireland called Doolin will give you a sense of true Irish culture and heritage. Known by many as the music capital of Ireland, Doolin boasts a number of intriguing pubs and shops for visitors to explore. The musical influence in Doolin became more pronounced when a world-renowned Irish folk musician named Micho Russel lived and played in the area. His music became popular around the world, and when he wasn't playing concerts in America or Europe, he was playing folk songs with his brothers at the local pubs.

The most well known local pub for its cozy, inviting atmosphere and its traditional Irish musical tunes is the Gus O'Connor's Pub in the heart of the town. Most shops, pubs, and restaurants are all located in one central area, so you will be able to explore the city easily on foot or by bicycle. In addition to the music festivals found throughout the year, you can also see some lovely cottages nestled throughout the city and in the surrounding areas. Many of the cottages offer luxury accommodations and self-service so that you can enjoy a peaceful, quiet atmosphere while on holiday.
