About Liscannor

Liscannor PierThe name of Liscannor is synonymous in Ireland with stone: numerous small quarries, usually worked by the farmer who owns the land, abound in the area.

Liscannor is the closest town to the famous Cliffs of Moher, some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe and it was the birth-place of John P. Holland (1841-1914), who is credited with inventing the submarine as a means of warfare. Liscannor has its own share of field monuments in the vicinity to interest the archaeologist, such as the 15th century Kilmacrehy church and, in particular, a fine example of a Holy Well (St. Brigid’s Well) which as a place of significance probably dates back to pre-Christian times. It has some excellent pubs serving fresh seafood from local fishermen.
