Ireland - Tuesday 21 July

We left Galway travelling south along the west coast of Ireland with this farmland picture taken not far south of Galway. Then on through part of the Burren which is quite rugged in parts and with lots of varied vegetation in some areas. Very different but with all the rain there, many areas had plenty of grass for livestock. We did an unplanned side trip to the Cliffs of Moher (part pictured). The weather was windy and rainy at both areas so photography was usually difficult.
Then it was on to the Bunratty folk park which features Bunratty Castle and many buildings re-erected or built in the older traditional styles e.g. farmhouses, water-driven mills, workers cottages, stables, shops, doctor's home and surgery and a manor house etc. Very interesting even if a bit too forced. Had a few farm animals and deers too.
Then we did a far-too-quick flit through Limerick and Adare finally stopping in Killarney.
