This is not for people with 2 left feet. We did the white trail which is 40 minutes and it had some steep parts. The views are amazing, not only on the trail but on the drive to and from it. Not sure that it's...More

It was a rainy and very windy day (early October) to hike the Burren...we thought Shane may cancel our plans to see this magnificent landscape. But no, he showed with walking sticks, dressed perfectly for the weather and off we went! Discussion of the area,...More

went for a great walk around mullaghmore loop.took about 3 hours. graded as very difficult and it certainly was due to the uneven surface that was very hard on the feet even with walking boots. however worth it for the wonderful views.
