This is a cultural tour of Dough & Kilkee. We start up at Gratton Street, formally known as Francis Street, and get a perspective of the layout of the town.
Imagine the sand doons surrounding the beach with fisherman’s cottages sprinkled here and there. Learn about the conception of Kilkee as a special place to come and take in the fresh air and immerse yourself in the salt water ‘for medicinal purposes’.
Revisit the lifestyle of some of Kilkee’s unusual visitors and discover what made it one of Europe’s premier resorts in the 19th & 20th century.
Facts and fiction interwoven together, always interesting never boring.
