Loop Head Alpacas


WELCOME to The Daily Click, where we put the spotlight on businesses in County Clare with an online shop. The Clare Echo is asking local people to get behind Clare businesses, and to think local before visiting international shopping websites. Today, we are showcasing local businesses offering great days out in Clare. Go ahead, give them a click and explore some of the unique offerings that would make for a very thoughtful Christmas present.
