Re-opening June 2nd 2021
Welcome to Clare's Rock Accommodation. We are the only accommodation in the high Burren that specialise in group accommodation.
Clare’s Rock in The Burren National Park is located just off the Wild Atlantic Way in the village of Carron/Carran. It is central to many of the best walking trails, including the Carron loop, the Nature Reserve at Mount Carran, and the Mulloughmore National Park walks. (Maps and information of all the Burren walks are available at the hostel)
We are within walking distance of all the major attractions including Poulnabrone Dolmen, Caherconnell and Cathair Chomain stone forts and the National Park at Mulloughmore.
The hostel is only a short drive from Aillwee Cave and the Cliffs of Moher, The Michael Cusack Centre,Hazel mountain chocolate, and The Burren Perfumery.
Cassidy’s pub and restaurant is only 200 metres from the hostel.
In the peaceful surrounds of the Burren we can guarantee an enjoyable stay, in clean and comfortable en-suite rooms.
After your day in the Burren you can cook in our kitchens or eat at the local pub/restaurant
We have to operate differently this year due to COVID19
Clare’s Rock will open for pre-booked family and group bookings only of 2021. It will no longer operate as a hostel for individuals or walk-in customers as social distancing is essential.
It will be possible to book our main building with 8 bedrooms or either of our two self-catering units for family and private groups.
Units have up to 5 bedrooms, but if you need less rooms give us a call and we can give you a quote.
All units are set up for self-catering and are self contained to meet Covid19 guidelines
There is a 2 night minimum stay.
Thanks to all our guests who stayed with us in 2020 and made it possible for us to operate safely.
It is our intention to continue to maintain our standards to this level into the future.
