I am going cross eyed reading all of the links about GSM. I reckon I'm going to have to look for a Lonely Planet or similar to help me!!!
Is a week too long in GSM, I read the Q&As which gave a good itinerary for 3 days, but seemed to suggest that it was still just seeing the highlights.
We enjoy short hikes - I'm not in to one big full day hike but don't mind multiple short ones! We also love the wildlife - no real bears in Ireland!
