cg On my roadtrip to County Clare I fell in love with the sights and sounds I saw. The Cliffs of Moher were amazing to see and we also stopped in Doolin on our way bacjk from the cliffs. ride was very scenic and gives you many chances to take pictures.
On the way back to Co. Galway we went to a Dolmen and visited the Ailwee Caves. It was a cool day trip and I was lucky the weather held out for us. The Burren with it's limestone is a great place to just sit and relax. I thought is was cool that in spots the limestone of the Burren melts into lush green fields. County Clare is also the home to Shannon Airport and is a great place to begin your journey If visiting the west of Ireland Counry Clare is a must see.
I know I'm being a bad tourist when I say this but I visited the Poulnabrone Dolmen and I can't give directions to it so your all on your own. My wife's uncle Cyril was driving and he seemed to know where he was going and we made it there.
I will say however that though there is scenic beauty the roads are very narrow and winding, so if your driving please be careful because the locals drive fast.
