As with the other reviews the landscape is totally different to what you would expect to see in ireland. It is rather like a moonscape. Interesting to see where the green ends and the rocks start. Well worth the drive to see. We had a large camper van and stayed on the main road which was narrow and,winding. Not a good drive because of the narrow roads. Don't get off onto the smaller ones unless you are in a car. Too,hard to pass.

For an entirely different Irish landscape, a trip to the Burren region is well worth your time. Accurately described as a strange lunar landscape, there is nonetheless, a thriving ecosystem and places like the Burren Perfumery utilize the local flora to create some lovely products (soaps, candles, lotions etc). Home to the 5,000 year old portal tomb, the Poulnabrome Dolman, there are interesting things to see that are unique to this area of County Clare.

the Burren is a large area, so first of all one needs a car, preferably with gps because the roads are small, winding and the signs confusing. There are several places to visit, ruins, tombs and just the landscape. That landscape is probably an ecological disaster of bad soil management, ruthless wood cutting, too much grazing etc, the result though is ethereal

Walk around this and imagine people living in this wild environment. Don't expect sun or warmth though - we were here in a rainy mist with wind.

He was a local farmer who know a lot about the plants and history of the area. He got on our bus with us and had us stop at several places.
