One of the main reasons for renting a car was so that I could go see Father Ted`s Parochial House – not one of those places the tour buses usually stop. You can call ahead and arrange to go on to the property. Or you can hang outside the gates with the other fans all stopping for a photo.
You have to take a couple smaller roads that take you through the Burren, but it`s worth the drive. After stopping at the house I headed towards Gort and then Tulfarris on more back roads.

I spotted a tall tower and some ruins from the road to Gort and made an unplanned stop at Kilmacdough Monastery (Cill Mic Dhuach).
