On the Map: Corofin is located in County Clare in the west of Ireland. The village is only 20 minutes/ 15km north of Ennis town, reached via the R476, which intersects with the main N85 road (connecting the cities of Ennis & Ennistymon) just north of Ennis.
Corofin is the southern gateway to the famed Burren Region, one of Europe’s most distinctive landscapes.
It is situated on the River Fergus only ten kilometres from Ennis town. The village takes its name from an ancient fording place on the river Fergus, associated in legend with the romantic hero, Fionn Mac Cumhail and his chivalrous warrior band – Ireland’s answer to King Arthur and his Knights. The hinterland is known as Clare Lakelands and Lake Inchiquin is beside the village.
Set in the unique Burren landscape, Corofin is an old settlement of considerable historical importance, having its roots in an estate village created to service the O’ Brien barony of Inchiquin. Catherine Keightley, wife of Lucius O’ Brien and first cousin to the two English monarchs, Queen Mary and her sister Queen Anne, built St. Catherine’s Church in the early eighteenth century. The church now houses the Clare Heritage Centre
