Murrooghtoohy Discovery Point is on the coast in the unique area of karst landscape in County Clare known as The Burren.
There are magnificent views of the whole of Galway Bay from the Aran Islands to Oranmore Bay east of Galway City, with a back drop of the Connemara mountains.
The area is well suited for walking with easy and more difficult routes available. One can walk the 26km Black Head Looped Walk beginning at Fanore Beach and taking in the Black Head Lighthouse and the stone fort of Cathair Dhuin Irghuis. This would talk about 5.5 hours of strenuous walking.
