... arrival at 6:30 AM in a still sleepy Belfast on St. Patrick's Day! Rental secured, it was off to County Clare and our accommodations in Cooraclare. Cooraclare is close to the western coast in the southern third of Ireland. The trip down through the beautiful Irish countryside was occasionally interrupted as we went through villages and towns in the middle of St Patrick's day celebration.

We walked across a 30 foot rope bridge ...
Cold does not even begin to describe the temperature of our room last night. I fell asleep in two pairs of pants, my slippers, my winter hat and my winter coat. I was not cold sleeping but I sure as heck didn't want to get out of bed in the morning. I think it was actually warmer outside the hostel then it was in our room. At least we had a quiet night.
