Lisdoonvarna developed into a tourist centre as early as the mid 18th century when a top Limerick surgeon discovered the beneficial effects of its mineral waters. People travelled from near and far to bathe in and drink the mineral waters which are rich in iron, sulphur, magnesium and calcium. Lisdoonvarna is close to many major tourist attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and the rugged North Atlantic coast.
