Went for a walk for a few hours in Connemara National Park
in Ireland, walked up the maintained trail from the visitor centre to the nearby mountain. We didn't hit the top because some of the trail got a little exposed for my better half who was with me. Weather was misty and low cloud, but still some very nice views of the area and the coastline from the higher bits.

Their boggy type vegetation and heather is decidedly more prickly than ours:

What I'd call "alpine" at home is a highland peat bog, the result of the loss of the trees thousands of years ago.

the local mountains are still nice, and we went partially up
this one for a nice view.

and then dropped back down to the visitor centre.

Any fool can be uncomfortable...
