Finding us is fairly easy - Lisdoonvarna is a small town!
GPS: N 53.0281, W 9.2922
Coming from the south (Ennis/Cliffs of Moher/Corofin):
You enter the town via a small bridge, then go up the hill past the Hydro Hotel on your left. You will come to a junction at a small square. On the corner on your left will be a Chinese restaurant. Here you turn left into the road that will bring you past the Roadside Tavern, our own red pub. (Should you come to a roundabout, you will have missed the turn-off! You will have to turn back and take the next road right.)
About 300 m up the road, you will find a carpark on your left where you can leave your vehicle and walk a few metres back to the Smokehouse.
