Very beautiful peaceful mountains. Different colours and shapes. The place is mysterious and magical. There was a slight mist on the mountains. Fresh air good.

This trip is a must do! To get to know Ireland in its essence, travel outside of Dublin as well. The landskape is from a different world. Also, you can tell when people love their jobs, because they do it very well. Same goes for...More
