I remember being too tired to go out for food on my first day in Clare when I was cozying in my Airbnb room. In reality, I was just too scared to drive in the pitch dark (sun sets at 4:00PM during winter), on a narrow lane with no street lights in a remote area with hardly 1 or 2 houses on the way! Yes, my Airbnb was located in a remote village between Doolin and Liscannor. I mustered courage and drove to the Cliffs of Moher hotel for some Irish coffee and soup. Just when I was freaking out at no sight of people on the streets, I spot the hotel. I hesitantly get out of my car and start walking towards the restaurant. Soon after I open the door, I am welcomed to the chirpy sound of live music, people cheering and singing! And just like that all my fears, worries and fatigue disappeared. I felt safe and alive in that very moment.
Here are some of the places I absolutely enjoyed the trad sessions at and would definitely recommend visiting them
