From Ballyvaughan

follow the signs for Ailwee Cave, go past the cave entrance on the R480 towards Ennis, after 3 miles you will pass Poulnabrone Dolmen on your left

then Caherconnell stone fort on your right, 200 meters after the fort take a left (Narrow road) for Carran, stay on this road until you reach the pub.

If you prefer wider roads do not take the left after the Fort but continue on the R480 and take the next left , this is 3 miles longer than the first route
