Loop Head Peninsula

Loophead Peninsula, Clare, Ireland


The Loophead peninsula on the west coast of County Clare juts into the Atlantic Ocean like a gnarled finger pointing westward. It is bounded on the North and West side by the Atlantic Ocean and on the South by the River Shannon estuary with barely one mile of land saving it from island status meaning it has one of the highest ratios of coastline to land surface in Ireland.
