The fields and roadways are full of edible plants, including nettles and dandelions, just ripe for the picking . I found hearty flowering wild garlic along the stream in Doolin, by Fisher St.  Beautiful wildflowers, ferns,  the strange looking great horsetail and the call of the cuckoo bird make the Burren a special place for walking or cycling, especially under a cloudless sky!cycler
