Fanore (Irish: Fánóir, Fán Óir, meaning "the golden slope") is a small village in County Clare, on the west coast of Ireland. The area was officially classified as part of the West Clare Gaeltacht; an Irish-speaking community; until 1956.
The village is very popular with walkers, surfers, tourists and is particularly interesting to botanists, owing to its location on the edge of the Burren – renowned for its unique flora and fauna. It has a pub, a post office/shop, and a restaurant, as well as a surfing school near the beach.
Bus Éireann route "350" links Fanore to several locations: Ennis, Ennistymon, Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, Lisdoonvarna, Kinvara and Galway. There are a number of journeys each way daily. Onward rail and bus connections are available at Ennis and Galway.
Fanore has appeared many times on Irish television: in particular, the Father Ted series often featured scenes filmed in Fanore and its surrounding villages.
