Today we drove from Dingle to Doolin, we took a car ferry across the Shannon river and headed up to the Cliffs of Moher, some of the biggest ocean cliffs in the world. They were nice but not as great as we expected. from there we headed to Doolin, a small country town near the coast. It is famous for its Traditional music scene. This was probably our favorite town in Ireland. a population of 600 and about 10 times more tourists, all of which were in the pubs at night. Being a Saturday it was busy but these pubs were packed. We stayed in a hostel which is a renevated 17th century farmhouse, it was very cosy. We stayed in an 8 person dorm which is not my favorite thing but only for 1 night. We made use of the kitchen and cooked ourselves and then headed to one of the 2 pubs down the road for a few Guiness. We sat outside under the verandah and had a view of the rolling hills and cows, you don't get that in the big city. very cool. The music started at 9:30pm and was a band of 4 playing traditional Irish music. It sounds great live and felt very Traditional. Tomorrow is out last day in Ireland.
