This is Part 2 of my blog post on our ten-day trip to Ireland in October, 2018. The first part covered Dublin, Belfast, the Antrim Coast (Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Giant’s Causeway and Bushmills Distillery), Ashford Castle in Cong, Connemara and Kylemore Abbey.
From Connemara, we headed south through County Clare, crossing through the area known as The Burren, a portion of which forms Ireland’s smallest national park. The area is marked by large expanses of bare rock, mostly limestone, that appear stark and forbidding.
