Ennis and Galway: Last Few Days In Ireland!!

Tahlia: After our tiring yet exciting few days in Killarney, it was time for us to leave for Ennis to do a few tours from the surrounding areas. On our first tour we went through The Burren, a rocky bare landscape consisting of many criss crossing cracks. It also contains more than 90 tombs (one is pictured below). 

The next stop on the tour was the Cliffs of Moher, an expanse of rocky cliffs 120m high which extends kilometres into the distance. It was a gloomy foggy day though, so this is the best view we got. 
The following we travelled to Galway to see the famous fishing city, do some more tours and eat fish and chips. On the first day we took a tour to Kylemore Abbey which was surrounded by beautiful scenery.
 On that tour we also stopped at the ruins of an old friary dating back hundreds of years.
Now - off to Germany!
