The Shannon Region consists of counties Clare and Limerick . Clare has an abundance of visual riches from the famous river Shannon and Lough Derg which form its eastern boundary and west towards its rugged Atlantic coastline with towering cliffs and golden beaches. Limerick is a county of quiet beauty and rural charm. Its gentle undulating landscape is pleasing to the eye from the beautiful Golden Vale in the east to the tidal estuary Shannon Estuary in the west.
