Tom Malone's Pub Parking: Parked up for the weekend

General

  • Peaceful Wild Atlantic Way site five minutes’ drive from sandy beaches
  • In Miltown Malbay, 25 minutes’ drive from the famed Cliffs of Moher
  • Electric hook-up, fresh and black water facilities and secure gates

Hols on Ireland’s west coast come highly recommended for many reasons, not least the stunning sights this part of the country is famed for. Tom Malone’s Pub Parking, a family-friendly aire in the small town of Miltown Malbay, County Clare, is particularly well-placed for the most scenic of explores.

Clare’s big draw is the Cliffs of Moher, spectacularly soaring cliffs 25 minutes’ drive from the site. Movie buffs may know them as the Princess Bride’s Cliffs of Insanity, or as the cliffs housing Slytherin’s locket in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, but even those not familiar with either title should be able to appreciate the trails and views, and O’Brien’s Tower.

This is walking country too: paths can be followed from atop the cliffs to the small village of Doolin (where boats can be caught for trips along the base of the cliffs and out to the Aran Islands), or guests can opt instead to journey inland to the Burren, a UNESCO geo park crisscrossed with walking trails. Its gateway, Corofin, is 30 minutes from the site.

It's worth noting that this is an aire rather than a campsite and so it doesn't have full campsite facilities. It does, however, have electric hook-ups and fresh and black water facilities available (although there's no wifi). Stays should feel peaceful too, as guests’ sleep will go undisturbed: a secure gate blocks vehicle access from 10.30pm until 7am (unless previously arranged).

Thank you for the review, much appreciated. Unfortunately we don not have bins but that is clearly stated on Pitch Up and there are recycling centers around the town for paper, glass and cans.

Such a pity people feel unable to add their name when posting a negative review or are not specific in telling us how we can improve our Aire. So again all we can point out is that we operate an Aire not a campsite and as such we only provide Aire services and facilities hence the low pricing structure. Most of our guests understand this.

  • Leagard North, Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare, Republic of Ireland, V95 NV63

Directions


Local attractions

A short stroll from the site will bring guests to the centre of Miltown Malbay, where experiencing traditional Irish music, dancing and storytelling is a matter of wandering into a pub. Keen to know more? The Music Makers of West Clare heritage centre, five minutes’ stroll from base, will provide a grounding in the history of the art form.

For the full Clare experience, it’s just 30 minutes’ drive to Lisdoonvarna, the famed home of Europe’s biggest singles matchmaking festival, and 30 minutes in the opposite direction will bring explorers to Kilkee and the start of Loop Head, where scenic drives along a largely unexplored stretch of coastline and pitstops at the active Loop Head lighthouse await.

Fans of TV’s Father Ted will want to make a pilgrimage to the Father Ted house. A 45-minute drive will bring fans to Craggy Island's parochial house (no boating required) and, if the group won’t be too disappointed at the different interior, afternoon tea can be had if booked in advance.

Lazier days can easily be had by sticking closer to the site. It’s less than five minutes’ drive to sandy stretches at White Strand and Spanish Point for safe swims, and Spanish Point is a must for surf lessons. Fancy ditching the car? It’s a 25-minute walk to White Strand, and 40 minutes to Spanish Point.
