Irelands Southwest and West (Part 4)

Part 4 of our 2017 trip through Irleands South­w­est and West.

Leav­ing The Bur­ren and Doolin (and the Cliffs of Moher, but that’s anoth­er … more digit­al … story) behind us, we headed north to touch Gal­way, the beau­ti­ful old town lay­ing on our way to Con­nemara County.

Gal­way … with some typ­ic­al Irish pub :)

From Gal­way it was a short, but nev­er­the­less beau­ti­ful ride to Clif­den — our final stay in the west.

Dog’s Bay and Gur­teen Bay — two nice beaches lay­ing vis-á-vis on a spit of land.

The tiny vil­lage of Round­stone, with its ceram­ics and craft shops.

Up to the Skyroad (giv­ing its unique driv­ing exper­i­ence), driv­ing by cloud covered hills and …

… hav­ing a fant­ast­ic look from the Wild Atlantic View­point.

… still more ana­log work to come.

Earli­er parts of this series can be found here.

In case you’d like to com­ment, it’s appre­ci­ated … and maybe, you want to vis­it my web­site or my flickr page too.

So long … and thanks for all the fish.

    Nice. We did Gal­way and Clif­den as well. I bought a tweed jack­et in Clif­den at Mil­lar’s.

    • Nice region, indeed. Bought a Tilley Hat in Clif­den before hik­ing the Dia­mond Hill. Unfor­tu­nately, this was the noth­ern­most part we vis­ited. So there is room for anoth­er voy­age ;)
