Dr. Patrick J. Hillery Public Library, Miltown Malbay

On April 6th 1995 a modern, multi-purpose, community library was opened in Miltown Malbay. The library was entirely funded out of the Council’s resources and would not have been possible without the co-operation of Clare V.E.C. and the Miltown Malbay Area Joint Social Employment Scheme.

Dr. Patrick J. Hillery Public Library, Miltown Malbay, has a stock of over 8,400 books for adults, and 6,400 books for children. Clare County Library’s Irish Traditional Music Collection of tapes and CDs is housed in the library, and there are four free public access internet PCs. The library has a current membership of over 1,000 readers.

One of Ireland’s most famous sights, the Cliffs of Moher are entirely vertical and the cliff edge is abrupt. On a clear day the views are tremendous, with the Aran Islands etched on the waters of Galway Bay. From the cliff edge you can just hear the booming far below as the waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone.

With a due-west exposure, sunset is the best time to visit.
