Cahermurphy, ( Cathair mhurchu In Irish), Lough Graney and it’s environs is sometimes referred to as the “Killarney” of Co. Clare. It is an unspoilt area of natural beauty. The area was made famous by the poet Brian Merriman in Cuirt an Mhean Oiche written in 1780. Cahermurphy house was once the stately home of Arthur Knox, the famed traveller/writer. A stone caher or stone fort can still be seen from the road on the lands of the present owner.
The site is known locally as the White Sands because of the stretch of sandy lakeside shore on the edge of Lough Graney.
