    ... decided the steeper last 1,000 vertical feet to the summit weren’t in my cards. It was well worth the work of hiking up and down, though, for the spectacular views over island-studded Clew Bay and out towards Clare Island.

    ... for a small lunch and coffees. Then we headed back on the Northern part of the loop to visit Kylemore Abbey. It has a lovely walled garden, woodland walks, the abbey and a gothic church.
