For those of you who have never been to Ireland, the Connemara Mountains are located in the western area of the country and north of Galway. Unlike The Burren, these are tall and lush with bushy, flowering vegetation as well as all manner of livestock. This was one of my favorite drives during our trip. Although the narrow country roads are a little scary, it was one of the more scenic places we went. By far my favorite sight was of all the spring lambs. At one point we pulled off the road (in one of the precious few places you can) and apparently the sheep thought we were there to feed them an all started running towards us. However, a few whistles of the resident farmer lower down the glen and they quickly realized there error and changed direction. It was really cute! If you are in Ireland and have one of those days where its just rainy all day, take a drive through the mountains, it is worth it!
