Where is it?
I live in the rural countryside of East Clare in the west of Ireland. I grow vegetables and fruits on about 1 acre of land. The garden consists of two poly-tunnels (greenhouses) for protected crops and a large outside area covered in raised-beds for more hardy vegetables. I also keep hens that lay eggs on a daily basis. There is very little traffic passing along the winding, one-laned road. Only a few neighbors inhabit the area.
The village of Tulla, 4 miles away, has all the amenities you will require. There is a large grocery store, post office, two hardware shops, several pubs that feature traditional Irish music, a butchers, healthfood shop, fruit and veg shop, mens wear shop, library, bank, laundrette & dry cleaners, catholic church, hairdressers, gas station, a Chinese restaurant, a traditional Irish restaurant and a fish and chip take-a-way. Ennis, the county town of Clare, is only a 20 minute drive away and offers a variety of shopping for everyone. There are also a multitude of restaurants and cafes to tempt you. Limerick and Galway are within an hour's drive and offer everything big cities in Ireland do.
East Clare has an abundance of fishing lakes and there are about 20 lakes within a 10 mile radius of our home. The East Clare Golf Club is only down the road near Feakle, which is the home of traditional Irish music in East Clare. There are several pubs there offering the best in music and fine-dining to boot!
Further afield is the Atlantic coastline with the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, Lahinch, Doolin Cave, Aliwee Cave and much more to interest you. Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, Knappogue Castle, Cragganowen, Dromoland Castle and Coole Park are just a few of the sights to see the diverse and beautiful flora and fauna of the west of Ireland.
