Lisdoonvarna (Lios Dúin Bhearna in Irish Gaelic) is a small village of 800 inhabitants located in County Clare in Ireland. Considered as a spa village, the village attracts many visitors every year who come to enjoy its festivals, as well as the Lissateaun Fort, a circular fort located 10km north east of the village.
Paved streets and colorful houses… This is how we can describe the small village of Lisdoonvarna! From the top of its 800 inhabitants in the year, the village is rather tiny, but seduces us immediately for its intimist streets, its colored signs, its warm Pubs with its regulars… The place is picturesque, quiet, and the daily life of its inhabitants slowly unfolds to the rhythm of the changing Irish climate.
The village has a high culinary specialty: smoked salmon! It must be said that the town has its own fish smokehouse: the Burren Smokehouse. It smokes its fish on the spot, and combines it with delicious and original marinades!
Every year, thousands of visitors push the door of the establishment to learn more about their traditional smoking technique and buy their products on site. Salmon, mackerel, rainbow trout… There is something for everyone! But beware: these are exceptional products: the prices may be high, but it is the price of excellence and quality!
Among the highlights of the village, don’t miss the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaker Festival, an event unlike any other! Forget all the festivals you know, because this one is unique.
It is nothing less than a festival for singles looking for love! That’s all! The concept is simple: thousands of bachelors meet and exchange… all in lively evenings where traditional Irish music takes its place!
An event that brings together singles of all ages, in a friendly and fun atmosphere! The concept works so well, that Lisdoonvarna boasts to have formed thousands of couples thanks to its dating festival!
Lisdoonvarna has health centers offering spas, with massages, whirlpools, as well as sulfur baths, famous for their therapeutic properties. (Lisdoonvarna is the specialist!) The village has an excellent reputation for the quality of its spa facilities. You can relax there in the greatest tranquility, with specialists in thermal cures!
