Giants Causeway!

April 30th, 2013 · 2 Comments

Had one of the best days ever! Spent the morning exploring Derry – Ireland’s only walled city. I walked on top of the wall all the way around and in doing so, learned about the tragic history of this city over hundreds of years – I can now see why there’s a gritty edgy feel […]

Gleveagh National Park – Derry

April 29th, 2013 · No Comments

Woke this morning to the worst weather I’ve seen on this trip – heavy winds, rain and even some hail… forget about camping tonight! I hugged the coastline all the way to Crohy Head, through the Rosses, a very beautiful part of Donegal and then to Kincaslough where I checked out Sharkey’s pub. Being fairly […]

Slieve League – Adara

April 28th, 2013 · No Comments

Finished the night in Westport by roaming from pub to pub, checking out the live music in each one. This is a great city for music, with about seven or eight pubs having traditional music within a couple blocks area. The final stop of the night was at a place that was pretty well deserted, […]

The Black Faced Mountain Sheep at Achill Island

April 26th, 2013 · No Comments

Another jam packed day today – I’ve added FIVE more potential pubs to the project: Mickey’s in Dooega, Lynet’s in Cashel, Valley House in Valley, John Patton’s in Dereens and the Achill Sound Hotel in Achill Sound – all of these villages have a population of less than 200. But the stars today were the […]

Clifden – Westport

April 26th, 2013 · No Comments

Yearning to get back out into the country, I bid farewell to Gerard and Richard (and Gally). Once again, I’m SO THANKFUL for these wonderful hosts! I look forward to meeting up again… Drove to Clifden and had a nice lunch of Seafood Chowder, then explored the town. It’s a nice enough little place with […]

Gort, New Quay and Ballyvaughan

April 25th, 2013 · No Comments

When i woke today, the weather looked fantastic for a game of golf, so we played 18 holes on the scenic Gort Golf Club. Richard gleefully took my money with his superb play, but no matter, the views were sublime and it felt great to get out and hit the ball. My drive off the […]

Galway

April 24th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Explored the beautiful city of Galway today! It’s a lively, vibrant place, with a large area for pedestrians, filled with shops, restaurants and pubs. I walked along the piers, through the Spanish Arch and along the Clauddagh, then toured some of the large cathedrals. Later in the day, Gerard and Richard met up with me […]

Bell Harbor – New Key – The Burren

April 23rd, 2013 · No Comments

What a day today! Loads of exploring and hiking: I woke to a bucolic scene just outside my bedroom window, a nice pasture with a flock of sheep roaming about! Just idyllic accommodations and I can’t thank Richard enough for hosting me here – he has been just wonderful and fun to hang out with! […]

Ballyvaughan

April 22nd, 2013 · No Comments

In the morning I was greeted by May at the B&B with another full Irish breakfast that she had prepared. Even though I wasn’t very hungry, she demanded that I sit and eat! I headed westward on the M6 toward my destination for the next few days, Ballyvaughan, a beautiful seaside village about an hour […]

Kells

April 22nd, 2013 · No Comments

I landed in Dublin at around 4:30am and was quickly issued a very nice red Nissan Micra. Driving was much easier than I expected – as though I had been driving over here for years! I set off on the motorway just as a gorgeous sunrise was emerging. As I exited the motorway toward Kells, […]
