To Cliffs of Moher and the Burren Geopark

Ireland is certainly one of the cleanest countries we have visited. Tiny Town Competition… What a great initiative!

This morning, a rainbow appears as we are driving along. Roger wants to follow it to the end to find the leprechaun holding the pot of gold 🙂

Everywhere in Ireland, the houses are surrounded with either hedges or walls. Why? It is a strong message to those who might want to take away their land, like in the past..

Well, now we know what Johnny Cash meant by his song, 40 shades of Green..

On the way to the Cliff s of Moher and the Burren Geopark, we stop to spend some time with creative chef Oonagh. What a special environmentalist. Thanks to her, we discover local ingredients from the land and the seashore that she forages to prepare exquisite dishes. Salads, pesto, seaweed treats, etc.

The best is, she prepared a picnic basket that we get to bring with us 🙂 All the containers and spoons are made of Corn starch!

At St Tola, we visit a goat’s farm and learn about the sustainable farming practices used. This is followed by a cheese-making demonstration and tasting. Succulent!

Last but not least, we travel to the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, awarded the ‘Global Geopark’ status by UNESCO.
