The picturesque west coast port of Foynes in County Limerick is ideal for discovering the beautiful Irish rolling green landscapes, medieval ruins and friendly towns and villages. Foynes is a small town, and apart from the very interesting Flying Boat Museum, which is well worth a visit, there are a minimal number of other attractions in the town. It is, however, ideally situated for exploring Counties Kerry, Limerick and Clare.
Foynes is a small town and major port in County Limerick, situated by the estuary of the River Shannon. it is noteworthy as being the last port of call on the east of the Atlantic Ocean during the early years of aviation when flying boats frequented the area. This all changed with the construction of Shannon Airport, across the river on flat bog land. One of Foynes' main claims to fame is the invention there of Irish Coffee. This came about, it is said, in order to alleviate the suffering of cold and wet passengers during its aviation past, in the 1930s and 1940s. The Foynes Flying Boat Museum contains much memoribilia from the era, and includes the original radio and weather room, along with its equipment. Foynes is located on the coast road to County Kerry. Adare Castle is also well worth a visit.
