Week in Ireland

A May 2004 trip to Ireland by JLDLondon

Quote: Biking through Burren, the Cliffs of Moher, and Killarney National Park.

The place was fairly large, very clean, and quiet, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. It is very close to a grocery store, several restaurants, and a shopping center. We stayed with three other friends in a private quad for about 15€ per person.

After hanging out at the Cliffs and enjoying a picnic, biked back through Doolin up to the Burren, which is a very unique area with nothing but limestone and a few wildflowers. A fairly strenuous ride, lots of long hills, but the views were worth it!
