I recommend the walk to the summit of Mullaghmore. The views from the top are superb. It's not that hard a walk. Took us 2 hours up and down. Walking shoes/boots are preferred but it's not muddy at all.

A hidden treasure, beautiful drive. Saw wonderful sights- flowers, hills, bogs, waterfall. Visited the perfumery - gorgeous. Tiny, winding country roads.

I’d never heard of The Burren even during my planning for our Ireland trip. I heard about it from a local at a pub in Kilkenny who found out I was a plant scientist. He said botanists from around the world came to study unique...More
