Doolin House Ruin,Doolin (5 mins walk)

Built by Thomas McNamara in 1783, this house had a central role in Doolin's history. France McNamara, a prominent landlord, entertained many literary figures here and encouraged natural bathing in the area. The house was burnt to the ground by the Black and Tans in 1920 in retaliation for an IRA ambush.
