on my last night in doolin i was talking to some fellow hostelers about my plans to go to galway the next day and i mentioned that i was sad that i hadn't had a chance to the burren. one of the guys mentioned that he and a friend had rented a car and were planning on driving through the area the next day. they offered to drop me off in galway.
this is why i love traveling alone. otherwise i never would've gotten to see this.
we also stumbled upon a neolithic portal tomb.
it was way better than taking the bus.
