We shook our heads at new houses being built in a small area carved out of rock on three sides, often with a huge sheer wall behind. Why would you, we wondered? At Carna we got chatting with the publican and as always learned a lot. (BTW we haven't ...

Seeing the Burren and heading to Ennis

After breakfast, we packed up the car and headed out to explore the Burren. Our first stop was The Burren Centre in Kilfenora. It's a small center with an exhibit about the history of the Burren as well as a short film. After visiting that we drove through the Burren stopping ...
