    If you search images of Mt Errigal you will see for yourself how bare it is.

    Atlantic drive Achill island Mayo. A favourite place much loved by our grandchildren because of the quiet almost dersted beaches, and safe swimming.

    Loughcrew County Meath.

    It's a steep climb to the summit but well worth the effort because of the ancient structure and the panoramic view from the top. There are usually Archaeologists on hand to explain the significance of the site. Tours of the interior are free.
    Close by are very interesting gardens, and a cafe.

    My pleasure, bobbysands.

    Here is W. B. Yeat's Tower near Gort in Galway.

    We camped adjacent to the river at midnight! 1972ish. Woke to see cattle waiting to drink and a farmer smiling all over his face at the jackeens camped on dried cow dung.
    We did arise and go then......hurriedly........I still blush to this day at the thought.
    The tower is a musueum.

    The famous Cliffs of Moher in county Clare.

    Perhaps the most visited coastal scenery in Ireland. The nearby Arann Isles can be seen in the Atlantic ocean from the cliffs. Flying over them from Shannon one sunny morning was an experience we will never forget. Jewels in the ocean.

    The Burren - my favourite place of all - if you get a chance and want a bit of solitude, in a very special place, try the Caher River Valley (turn off the coast road at the church in Fanore).
    I really enjoy your posts - keep them coming - thanks

    A walk around Beara Island in a soft rain is a good idea.
