St Cronan’s 10th Century Church

YOUR pooch is part of the family and while you would love to bring them everywhere with you, sometimes it just isn’t practical.

But dog friendly hang outs are becoming more popular, with a cinema in Dublin even hosting a dog friendly screening of Isle of Dogs recently.

Our Love Clare columnist Aoibhín Garrihy has the lowdown on the best places in Clare to bring your four legged friends.

Bark and Ride: Think school bus for dogs! This genius service will pick up and drop off your pampered pooch after a day of fun and frolics at Dysart O’Dea Doggy Daycare and Kennels complete with outdoor and indoor play area (and comfortable heated kennels for overnights). Guilt be gone. Your answer to that hectic schedule.

Rowantree Cafe: Nestled on the river bank in the heart of Ennis, the Rowantree Cafe has a covered seating area complete with blankets and dog bowls, so you can enjoy the tranquil sounds of the flowing river while sipping a glass of red with your pooch on tow!

Coast Lodge Hotel, Spanish Point: If your canine companions are anything like my two, they love the beach! I can’t think of a better way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon than a fresh walk along the coast followed by an ice cream outside the Coast Lodge (complete with benches and brollies) as you soak up the sunset together.
