Fanore is a small village in County Clare, on the west coast of Ireland.
Lying on the road between Ballyvaughan and Doolin, Fanore has an extensive sandy beach. The village is very popular with walkers, surfers, tourists and is particularly interesting to botanists, owing to its location on the edge of the Burren – renowned for its unique flora and fauna. It has a pub, a post office/shop, and a restaurant, as well as a surfing school near the beach.
Fanore has appeared many times on Irish television: in particular, the Father Ted series often featured scenes filmed in Fanore and its surrounding villages.
