Liscannor is a coastal village on the west coast of County Clare Ireland. This is a small rural village located at the end of Liscannor Bay, on the R478 road between Lahinch, to the east, and Doolin, to the north. It is noted as the birthplace of engineer and submarine innovator John Philip Holland, there is now a small museum opened to this remarkable innovator. There are a number of pubs and bed and breakfasts in Liscannor as well as a Hotel and self-catering.
Liscannor is a busy tourist village in the summer but in the winter the population dwindles. The Cliffs of Moher are just a short drive from the village, there is a designated coastal walk to the cliffs and onto Doolin (if you like) beginning in Liscannor. On the main road to the Cliffs of Moher just outside the town is an interesting place to stop, a holy well dedicated to Saint Bridget. People visit St. Bridget's well for its curative properties. You will see people walking around it saying decades of a rosary, and this particular well is noted for the wealth of votive religious objects left there like images of the Virgin Mary or Rosary beads that are hung up on the wall, it's a real treat to see.
Liscannor is home to an annual coursing meeting in spring. It is also home to Joseph Mc Hughs bar, made famous by it 's original owner, who still lends his name to the business and the song which tells of this larger than life character. It's close proximity to Lahich makes it a haven for golf enthusiasts year round.
