Galway and surrounds

Don’t ever believe the Garmin SatNav – it lies. We ended up travelling for and hour and a half to cover 18 mins worth of distance. We knew this because we had done it correctly the day before. Later we instigated the google Maps app instead and found it to be superior. But really we didn’t care, we were looking around at the scenery anyway, and we had no time restrictions so we enjoyed the detours too.

Saw some more drywalls and some stock
I really like cows.

We drove between our place and through to Ennistymon again but then went on to a different coffee place in the Main Street.

Little Fox cafe – very green and environmentally responsible.

Had a great day driving around Clare County. Some of the roads are a little tricky to navigate but patience and concentration is required.

Slowly, sharing nicely……

The weather was better today and we headed out towards the Cliffs of Moher and decided we had seen enough from the Doolin jetty so decided not to pay for the parking and walk in the blustering wind for half a mile to look at cliffs. So on we went, the sat nav must have taken offence at our lack of inclination to pay to see cliffs so sent us on a long and winding road to Ennistymon – where we were yesterday. But today there was no rain, so clearer pics and more fun.

After morning tea we headed north as we had planned to and arrived about 40mins later. We found Galway lovely. Lots of old traditional buildings and decorated streets. So glad we went to see it.

Lunch venue – Sea food restaurant of the year 2018. We had fish and chips and it was beautiful.

Some lovely buildings all over Ireland and the blue stone appears all over the place. It really looks solid and long lasting.
