Very cool place to cycle - how was the headwind? Were you with a tour? I cycled the Burren once and really loved it.

Did you see the rock that sort of looks like a Shpinx?

BTW - did you go with a group or a tour? I am cycling Eire, France, Spain, and Portugal next summer and am trying to recruit some riders or jump in a tour.

is that the one near ballyvaughan?
its a 30m high crag (cliff) called 'skull slab' (bacause it looks like a skull from certain angles)
i live in ennis (20 miles from the coast). this was my club's first annual tour.
I've ridden there.Lon Norder

I did a bike tour there several summers ago and had a great time - beautiful country and friendly people. The Burren was amazing - big domes of broken granite - as was the Connemara. Lots of ancient and not so ancient ruins.

Our route was figure eight shape on the western coast: Shannon (airport), Lahinch, Galway, Clifden, Westport, Galway, Kilrush, Dingle, Kilorglin, Waterville, Killarney, Bantry, Cork, Tipperary, Shannon.
