“If you think you have reached out to the extremes of the landscape of Ireland in one visit, ‘tis not until your feet have covered one sod of soil and your bike wheels another, the salt fresh waters have dried your mouth and the food has revived it again, then, and then only can you feel you have come close to an extreme or maybe a dream,” says Jennifer J. Crouser, guide for Outdoor Active Company based in Ireland.
