Day 11 - Omagh to Connemara

A travel blog entry by lisawesty


We departed Omagh and headed south to Connemara. We took the scenic route again though it was raining quite a bit most of the day which made the view of some areas very difficult! The Benadryl mum had taken had also knocked her for an absolute six! She slept most of today with my waking her for the important things! She was so tired she fell asleep …

I had tried booking ...

A travel blog entry by willou
