Three Bears' View aka Goldilocks's Rocks - Scenery in the Irish Mountains

High in the Irish mountains, three rocks sit overlooking an empty mountain landscape of peaks, ridges and valleys offering a good spot for a break to take in the view.

Okay, Ireland has no real height when compared with many other countries, but still for this island it's a high point with majestic views.

Perfect, you could imagine, for the three bears from the famous folk story to stop here and have a picnic whilst enjoying the scenic view.

Of course, if the three bears frequented this place, and in the past they might well have, then pesky Goldilocks wouldn't be far behind trying out the view from each of the rocks from largest to smallest.

Unfortunately bears went extinct in Ireland around 3,000 years ago, most likely due to competition with humans.

I've named it as Three Bears' View to avoid confusion with Three Rock in the Dublin Mountains.
