Doonbeg is a village in west County Clare, Ireland on the Atlantic coast. It is surrounded by dramatic scenery, and has developed as a tourist resort. The area was officially classified as part of the West Clare Gaeltacht; an Irish-speaking community; until 1956.LocationDoonbeg is situated on the N67 between the towns of Kilkee and Milltown Malbay. The nearest large towns are Kilrush and Kilkee, which are both approximately 7 miles away.The village is located in civil parish of Killard. It is part of the parish of Doonbeg (Killard) in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe. The village holds the church of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven. It is a modern church, noteworthy for the stained-glass windows that are uniquely designed so that the various colours illuminate the altar throughout the day. The church was built in 1976 and has an uncommon octagonal shape. It replaced the older crucifix-shaped church that was built in 1813.Doonbeg also has several pubs, Doonbeg National School, two shops, a post office and a village hall and tourist office. The central point of the village is an architecturally significant seven-arched stone bridge which crosses the Doonbeg River and divides the village. This is famous as a lady called Mary Belfast used to live under one of the arches and the remains of her dwelling exist to this day. The crossing is overlooked by the remaining fortifications of Doonbeg castle.
