We drove along the trail and stopped and looked and read all the plaques. If doing it over, I would buy the book available in the bookstores beforehand.

Lovely walk around Clew Bay with the small islands around the bay. Great views from up on Croagh Patrick, if you manage it!

I had a nice cultural trail upon the Tougher Padraig yesterday and you couldn't have a better time of the year to be there. During the month of April the Rolling Sun can be seen either from horseback or on the Bohea Stone. This neolithical phenononem dates back thousands of years and is a sight to behold.

A very interesting, old musty place with all sorts of artifacts and personal memorabilia from historical moments and people in the area. It is laid out by subject and crammed into cases. If they would only modernize the space, it would be a bigger attraction. We only had 45 minutes before it closed and we could have taken twice as... More

Bohea Stone on the Tougher Padraig Walk. Very interesting stone placement with its alignment with the pyramidical Croagh Patrick and the famous Rolling Sun, which occurs twice a year. I'll attach photos of this I took last year.
