We just had the opportunity to spend a week in Ireland off-season (February). Besides there being no crowds, having a great opportunity to meet the local folks and taking advantage of very low airfares, we had seven days without rain (a record of sorts)! One great spot to visit, especially if you like traditional Irish music and the quaint Irish seashore is Doolin in County Clare, about an hour's drive from Shannon Airport. Our B&B was Daly's House, run by Susan Daly and her daughter Katie. Susan is an accomodating host, the B&B is clean and comfortable with a great breakfast, and it's a very convenient base from which to explore the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, the Clare seacoast and, of course, the local pubs (with music nightly all year long)! Daly's House is very close to O'Connors Pub, our favorite. Susan and Katie are quite musical themselves (as it appears are most of the residents of Doolin). Ask them to sing a song!
