Hiking Connemara to the Cliffs of Moher
Our trip was excellent. About the only suggestion I have would be less walking on the road on Aran. I know this is difficulty without a van on the islands, but perhaps something could be arranged with a local. This would allow more time off-road to see more historic sites.
