Car Rentals Worldwide
Tour Clare is a travel website for the Irish going on holiday, and for those who are visiting Ireland and the rest of Europe. We are also a resource site for Irish Weddings.
This Irish-tourism website was created in 2001 to help the B&B's of County Clare after the tragedy of 9/11.
Today we have information throughout Europe but our hearts are still in Ireland.
All eco-tourism businesses are invited to send us an email and we will be delighted to add you to our resource pages.

We have a good number of tours around the world (see listings to the left).
For your convenience, our world tours can be reserved right here, from our website, well in advance of your holiday.

Car Hire Tips
Our best suggestion when travelling anywhere is to rent a car well in advance of your travel date.
If you are visiting Ireland, we feel renting a car on your holiday is the only reasonable way to visit all the castles, abbeys and other bits of antiquity you might want to explore.
Stay in a hotel with a good pub if you want to drink. This is just good common sense, of course. If you want to hear trad music in a local pub, take a taxi and ask the publican if he can provide you with one for the return to your hotel.
Check with your insurance carrier before your holiday to see what excess coverage (if any) you will need on your car hire. Many times it will be completely covered and you will know in advance so you won't be sold any insurance you don't need.
Read a little about the local laws and blood alcohol levels.
In Western Ireland, alone, there are over 3,000 earthen and stone forts, 130 megalithic tombs, 300 castles, 250 ancient churches, seven cathedrals, 12 monasteries, 20 stone crosses.
This is not to mention 15 round towers, delights to behold, and a panoply lesser monuments.
