    The stunning Connemara

    Everyone said we must go to the Connemara, a national forest wilderness on the west coast , about 2 hours' drive from Galway. We had another sparkling day of sunshine and relative warmth, so it was perfect for our trip. Everyday we are reminded that you don't go anywhere quickly in Ireland and this trip was no exception - once we were out of Galway, even the main road was narrow and badly graded, with no ...

    ... Sounded super cool - total letdown. The cheetahs knew they were going to eat anyway, so they really just waited for it to swing by and then jumped at it... Overall it was an excellent day.
    One of the people in the hostel (Johnny) made me supper 2 nights, which was awesome. Watched pitch perfect and LOL (why the frig would demi Moore do that to herself..?) with girls from Australia, France, turkey, and Germany.
    My purse broke, so I attempted to find a new one, ...

    ... Ring of Kerry, much to the children’s disgust as they would have preferred to go straight to our next accommodation!

    ... Despite the rain we were all excited to see the Book of Kell’s. We made our way through the campus only to find it does not open until 12 on Sundays. #FAILNUMBA2. So we went back out and decided to go back to Grafton street to a coffee shop that looked crowded. We ended up having some awesome pancakes and tea. Within 4 minutes of our food coming Allie ran back to the mall. Danielle and I waited in anticipation. Nearly finished with our food Allie renters the restaurant with ...

    ... Oirr, the smallest island and closest to Doolin, the city where we were heading too.  They also informed us that it's impossible to go to Doolin at this time of the day because it was low tide and you can't get to the pier until 3pm, sometimes even later when the tide is up.  They said they were heading to Doolin from both islands later on the day.  They offered us to ride to Inish Oirr and if there was room they would take us to Doolin later on.  At this time I was ready to ...
