We (my wife and I) will of course spend some time on Innish Moore as well, so any suggestions would be great. I've heard about McDermotts in Doolin, seems like the popular place. I'm sure the guinness will be just as good at any pub, but still, looking for some good music, nice scene, etc., etc.

Hi Seefresh,
well Doolin is tiny. eensy weensy tiny. There are only 3 pubs, and you can pretty much see each from the other. Seriously. Tiny place - http://www.kingsway.ie/doolin/DoolinMap.html.
Great place though - you will love it. To be honest I just wombled from pub to pub the two times I was there, depending on how busy it was, how good the music was etc. Guinness is great in all of them.


Other things to do: You *must* see the Cliffs of Moher, about 15 mins drive south of Doolin. They are immense and awe-inspiring. http://www.cliffsofmoher.ie/

Drive through The Burren, a limestone karst region between doolin and Galway. Visit Lisdoonvarna, made famous in the Christy Moore song of the same name, famed for the annual batchelor-festival there. A nice place to stop for a cuppa and a sandwich if i remember correctly is Ballyvaughan. There's also a smoked salmon place around there too.

If you like surfing or watching surfing, Lahinch, 10 mins south of the Cliffs, is worth a visit. Some decent pubs there on the seafront do a lovely chowder.

I've never actually been out to the Aran Islands (shame - I know!) but it's actually Inis Mor, not Inis Moore (Means Big Island - Inis is Island, Mor is Big)

On the road to Galway is a place called 'Morans on the wier' a famous seafood restaurant - http://www.moransoystercottage.com/.

But I think what you *really* are looking for is this....http://www.beb.ie/ - the Biddy Early brewery, in Inagh, 20 miles from Lahinch.

Hope this helps, and if I can be of any further assistance, feel free to PM me or post more here.
Enjoy your trip.
Oh - how long will you be there for, and how are you getting there and around??
Ken
