Kilkee, County Clare, West coast of Ireland, has become a popular place for vacationers and scuba divers. Blessed with stunning geographical features such as a perfectly sheltered bay, a rugged cliff-like shoreline, sandy coves, pools surrounded with rocks (famous Pollock Holes) and a huge semi half moon shaped beach, make it one of the top holiday destinations in Ireland. This protected bay is formed millions of years ago because of a break in the cliff walls of Western Ireland. Its shelter from the rough Atlantic Ocean and its clear unpolluted waters have made it one of the safest bathing places in the world.
It was a popular resort destination for the rich in the early 19th century. And for good reason as there are plenty of things to see in the surrounding area. You can take a walk up to Loop Head, explore the town Kilrush and nearby Scatter Island or visit the huge cliffs of Moher. Diamond Rock and the reef known as Duggerna Rock protect the bay from strong Atlantic currents, making it very suitable for sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling and other water activities. You can spot bottle nose dolphins, see seals and their pups or go on a bird watching tour. Kilkee is a great destination for one that loves nature.
