We followed the Wild Atlantic Way after visiting the Cliffs of Moher and we stopped to see the Burren. It makes you feel like you’re in another world. No wonder J.R.R. Tolkien used this place as his inspiration for Middle Earth in The Lord of...More

Looking at a map and seeing the name "Burren," I couldn't figure out what it meant or what there was to see and do. On our drive from the Cliffs of Moher to Galway, I saw this moonscape looming in the distance and as we...More
