Lots of beautiful sights here. I love this area. Watch out for the sheep on the road. They don't seem to watch out for cars. And if you hit one you have to buy it!

Where is it best to stay, and do several day walks from one location. Also, we would likely come from cork by public transit - what do you suggest. Ken Seniors from canada
