Final Irish hiking post for this week from the Burren, Co Clare.
In my last post I showed you a photo from our recent hiking trip to the Burren, Co. Clare. We made it to the top of the rock. It was a difficult hike for me. I’m used to forest routes, not rocky ones. It was worth the trek though to see this and to enjoy…
When you need to get away, you might as well get away to a totally different landscape. The Burren, Co Clare, a karst limestone national park. It’s a bit different from the green or the sea!
Driving around Ireland is probably very daunting for most tourists. For 75% of the world we drive on the “wrong” side and we drive quickly on narrow roads. A good example of this is around the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. It’s definitely a hold-on-to-our-stomach kind of drive!
The Burren in Co Clare is a karst landscape of limestone rock. I have only really been here once, although I’ve driven through the area many times. There are many different hiking trails there, mixed with little colourful villages. Have a lovely weekend 🙂
