Ireland's most unusual landscape is to be found in the Burren and the Hunt Museum in Limerick houses one of the country's most important art collections. History is revealed in the mills and thatched cottages of Limerick's towns while the artists and craft workers of County Clare blend modern design with older skills. And, of course, the River Shannon exerts its quiet influence through the region.
The Shannon Region consists of counties Clare and Limerick . Clare has an abundance of visual riches from the famous river Shannon and Lough Derg which form its eastern boundary and west towards its rugged Atlantic coastline with towering cliffs and golden beaches. Limerick is a county of quiet beauty and rural charm.
