Quilty Holiday Homes Clare

Quilty is a quaint fishing village on the western seaboard located between Doonbeg and Miltown Malbay in County Clare. Quilty is set in picturesque surroundings with the Aran Islands and Atlantic Ocean on one side, the Cliffs of Moher on another side with the Kerry mountains visible in the distance. The village has a safe sandy beach.

The village has long been associated with fishing with the traditional currachs much in evidence in the locality. Lobster, salmon, bass, herring and mackerel are landed at Quilty, formerly known for its curing industry. Pollock, bass and mackerel are fished from the shore.

Across the bay from Quilty is Mutton Island. St Senan founded a church here in the early 6th century but by 1887 little remained except the Bed of St. Senan, a shattered cross and a gable of his oratory. Tromoroe Castle lies about 3 km from the village.

Today there is no sign of its former woods (in Gaelic Quilty is ‘coillte’, meaning forest’)
