    ... 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.

    ... protects it from the Atlantic. It was grand in design, had a gothic church built nearby to house the remains of the premature death of the castle builder's wife and a most impressive walled garden. The castle/abbey has had no expense spared in its construction and furnishing. It was set on ten thousand acres and was intended as a hunting and fishing retreat from the owner's residence in London. It had a large number of workers who tended ...
