You could take a full loop of Dingle from Ballyseede.
I have a deailed post on East Clare that I did recently that I will link you to when I dig it up.
However, yes the Burren and Cliffs of Moher will be a handy trip.
Closer to home is Quin, Bunratty, Knappogue, Craggaunowen and you are very convenient to the lovely lough Derg.
Thank you for the info. Do you have info regarding rental cars? Thanks
Go out to the Skellig islands if at all possible. Climb Croagh Patrick. See the Rock of Cashel. Take in the banquet at Bunratty. Touristy, but fun.
Dont stay in Ashford i stayed its not worth the price and the hype...i think next bst may be Dromoland but for Dromoland do your own research
I personally love Ashford Castle, stayed there many times and never had a bad experience. I enjoy Lough Corrib, landscapes around Lough Mask and Killary Harbour as well as Cong village. Cullins thatched restaurant at Ashford is wonderful, very casual, great seafood, ok prices.
Many prefer Dromoland Castle so I maybe in minority for prefering Ashford.
However, the current onine 3 night deals are a good price and can be shared 2 nights at one castle and 1 night the other. When you book online you book one castle, but when you receive confirmation you can phone up and ask for the split between the two castles. If you phone ahead of booking online, you will not get the online deal.
A great deal if you desire castle experience.
May I clarify something? Are you staying in Bodyke for 6 nights and one night in a castle?
