  • It is just an arc. Cute is the place where it is and walk area. It is not very maintained. Perhaps they could improve it and make it a little more tourist, but you will lose.

  • It is not a must-see, but if it comes to pass, then it isn't bad as any work to visit more. But the area there is more interest and more beautiful sites.

  • An Irish town that sums up only the great location of the Irish! A young, lively, cheerful city, singing in the street, everything is very happy!
