I must say I found it accedentaly while driving from Gort to Burren directon. I stopped in this non-touristic spot.

The only company you have is the company of the cows... 更多
Went out of our way to visit, but for a purpose. We wanted to go here to take video and drone pictures.

It was one of the more interesting ruins we saw and we almost had the place to ourselves. We loved the spots like this that were... 更多
