Cliffs of Mohr

We will be visiting Ireland in August. We would like to spend one evening near the Cliffs of Moher.

We will be driving toward the Cliffs from Galway and plan on visiting the Cliffs the following day, heading toward Limerick afterwards. Would it better to stay in Doolin or Liiscannor?

Either town would suit. Doolin tends to be quite crowded in Summer, especially in August.

Liscannor has a couple of nice pubs and might suit better for the one night.

My own personal preference would be Ballyvaughan, and as you are not visitng the Cliffs til the following day, this might work out for you.

You could spend some time exploring the Burren and maybe visit Aillwee Cave and Burren Perfumery on your first day.

Doolin is 1 mile to the CoM, and Liscannor is 5. Does that help you decide?

Liscannor might be a little less touristy than Doolin. Both are in beautiful locations.

If it was me, I'd choose Liscannor first, but would not object to staying in Doolin either.

if you're driving from galway to the cliffs and then on to limerick, it can easily be done in the same day.....

Thanks to all of you. I mentioned that we would be driving from Galway to give a sense of direction. We actually will be leaving from Dublin in the morning, stopping in Galway and then heading toward the Cliffs for the evenings stay.

Have a look at Fanore ...7 miles before Doolin on the coast road south of Ballyvaughan...much quieter than Doolin but it has a pub and a restaurant both serving good food and several b&bs

One place we really enjoyed was Kinvara which is certainly within driving distance of the Cliffs of Moher and not far from Galway, so you can stop early that day. We found a lot of choices for dining and one night we did the Medieval Banquet at Dunguarie Castle which was a lot of fun. If you are looking for a B&B there, consider Clareview House. It's a short drive in the country from Kinvara and the owner, Brenda, was so nice.
