We spent a day admiring Conemara, then the next day we weent down past the Burran, also called the Upside-down land. From a distance it looks like bare limestone, but when you get up close you can see that it’s full of cracks, with plants growing in them – so the plants are beneath the rock – upside down, see? We found several naturally bonsai-ed trees, and an orchid.

Then we carried on to the famous Cliffs of Moher. We had planned to see them, but the car park was 8 Euros. EIGHT FREAKING EUROS! so we gave that a miss.
