Fourth Day: Galway City to The Burren
Today, travel to the east side, and that's towards The Burren. The landscape here is fantastic (it is one of Ireland's top tourist sites), and on top of that, you'll find various artisan food producers, so you should be ready to try local honey, cheeses, and other kinds of foods as you discover the place.
Where to try
