Photos from County Clare

County Clare is known for beautiful natural scenery (Cliffs of Moher, Spanish Point, the Burren etc...), for its strong history of traditional music, and for its prehistoric heritage, visible today in the form of ancient dolmen and megalithic tombs (for example Poulnabrone dolmen in the Burren).
