The advantage of the car is that you can explore as you want, so we stopped a lot during this day
Afterwards, we took the road back to Galway and decided to go across the Burren (National Park). This area measuring approximately 250 square kilometers is enclosed roughly within the circle made by the villages Ballyvaughan, Kinvara, Tubber, Corofin, Kilfenora and Lisdoonvarna. Its specificity is that it is a rocky area. Our idea was to stop and to go for a walk around Poulnabrone Dolmen which is one of the symbols of the region but we couldn’t find it (the Lonely Planet map wasn’t really precise). So we stopped later on the road and went for a walk which allowed us to have an amazing panorama on Galway Bay. At this moment we were lucky as it was not raining. Coming back to Galway, the weather was horrible on the road. It was so raining that we couldn’t see anything and there was maybe 10 centimeters of water on the road. This is the Irish weather!!
