Summer in Clare
Updated: May 19, 2020
Our wonderful county has been attracting tourists from all over the world for generations. As a result, much of our industry is catered to discerning tastes. Local artisans have put our community on the world map.
Buy In Clare is dedicated to all our local craft heroes. These guys have made County Clare a world renowned gastronomy and craft mecca. With the backdrop of the Atlantic, what better way to spend a Summer holiday. This site was created to keep connections to those artisans alive. Here is a quote from our very own John O Donoghue to remind us how every little helps:
“When you give into helplessness, you collude with despair and add to it. When you take back your power and choose to see the possibilities for healing and transformation, your creativity awakens and flows to become an active force of renewal and encouragement to the world. In this way, even in your own hidden life you can become a powerful agent of transformation in a broken, darkened world. There is a huge forcefield that opens when intention focuses and directs itself towards transformation.”
This too shall pass, once it does we will all celebrate together. In the meantime it's important to stay safe and support those who need it.
Summer season in our County
Our stunning county boasts one of the biggest tourism industries in Ireland. Last year we brought nearly 1 million international tourists to our shores and nearly half that again of other Irish people coming to see what we have to offer. The Cliffs of Moher alone is Ireland's leading tourist attraction.
With over 366km of pristine coastline and nearly 100 small islands dotting the horizon, the Clare landscape is one of intense beauty and diversity. The lockdown has affected everyone in Ireland, we are not the only ones suffering. From wedding venues to Ferry day trips and surf-board rentals many vendors have been forced to shut.
However, us Clare people are resilient, innovative and have a great sense of community. Here's to helping local businesses get through this with the help of all of us.
