Local Information

Killaloe lies where the River Shannon resumes its course out of Lough Derg; the river is wide and meandering. A narrow 13 arched stone bridge leads from Killaloe County Clare to Ballina Co. Tipperary.

The towns have been awarded heritage town status because of their rich and historic past. The royal palace of High King Brian Boru (926-1042), a founder of the O’Brien Clan and one of the greatest kings of Ireland is just one of the many sites to testify the national importance of Killaloe.

At the Southern end of Killaloe on the banks of the River Shannon stands the restored 13th century St. Flannan’s Cathedral. In the grounds of the Catholic Church at the top of the main street lies St. Lua’s Oratory after being rescued from Friar’s Island which was submerged by the Shannon Hydro Electric Scheme (1926-1929). Other interesting sites to see are the Pier Head and Tobermurragh which form part of the new Fáilte Ireland Killaloe Heritage Trail (4.5km).

Killaloe offers a wide variety of restaurants, each with its own unique atmosphere serving a wide variety of cuisine. There is also a good selection of pubs each with its own brand of live entertainment, fine pints and craic.
