The Burren

A travel blog entry by jmpncsu

we were doing a tour with Galway Tour Company to the Burren and Cliffs
of Moher. I had contacted the tour operator and they picked us up at
our hotel, rather than having to get back to downtown Galway. We
switched buses at the coach station and headed south around the bay to
begin our tour. We made a quick photo stop at Dunguaire Castle and then

I LOVE Ireland, but I have to say nothing beats being home with my family.
