The Loop Head Peninsula tour
Bound on one side by the Shannon Estuary and on the other by the awesome power of the Atlantic Ocean, Loop Head has always been defined by its relationship with the water. As you drive south from Kilkee and embark on the famous Loop Head Drive, you’ll be amazed by the dramatic cliffs, turbulent seascapes and historic sites you’ll encounter.
With scenery this beautiful, who could blame those Star Wars location scouts for being enticed? Loop Head was one of a handful of places along the Wild Atlantic Way used to film Star Wars.
Other Interesting stops on this tour are:
The Bridges of Ross were a trio of spectacular natural sea arches – at least until two of them fell into the sea. Today, even though only one ‘bridge’ remains, the name persists in the plural.
The Little Ark & Loop head lighthouse to name just a few.
