It's a beautiful sunny, but breezy day. White clouds float in the breeze and cast shadows on the lonely hillsides and ghostly mountain peaks, shrouded in fog. We drive through the Burren enroute to Connemara. The Burren is beautiful with the clear blue sky and for once no rain at the Poulnabrone Dolmen portal tomb! The boys skip from one tide pool rock to another. Elizaeth marvels at the tiny Mediterranean flowers that peak out of the craggy rocks beside Arctic grasses. We opt to skip ...

We walked from the parking lot along a trail that was slightly uphill through some pretty pastures. The fences were cool. They were originally made out ...
... decided to go across the Burren (National Park). This area measuring approximately 250 square kilometers is enclosed roughly within the circle made by the villages Ballyvaughan, Kinvara, Tubber, Corofin, Kilfenora and Lisdoonvarna. Its specificity is that it is a rocky area. Our idea was to stop and to go for a walk around Poulnabrone Dolmen which is one of the symbols of the region but we couldn’t ...
