Where I stayed
The Burren is an interesting place... it's in the middle of nowhere (I use that phrase a lot...) on the coast just north of the Cliffs of Moher. There's a ton of limestone that cracks with flowers and grasses growing up through it
We stopped for lunch at a pub where I learned that trout and salmon are essentially the same thing. How I grew up all these years not knowing that... I don't know... Chris didn't know either so that makes me feel a little better! Anyway, I had trout and Chris had ham, with veggies and potatoes. So yummy. The west coast of Ireland is known for their tasty fish.
Next major stop was the Cliffs of Moher. I saw these the last time I was in Ireland. They're these huge immense cliffs on the west coast, and they're are just amazing... They're just so crazy big and pretty. Unfortunately, there's a giant wall blocking a really good view of them. Fortunately, a quick walk south and a little trespassing, and ten minutes later you get the view of the cliffs sans wall. It's a bit dangerous, but if it's not windy and you're not doing anything stupid like those famous "look at me- i'm falling off a cliff!" poses, than it's perfectly fine
That night we ended up in Anascaul. I was finally feeling much better from whatever sickness I'd been having, so that was my first night of actual drinking with the rest of the group. We also cooked dinner with our roomies and it was all good fun. I was falling asleep in the pub at 11pm, so I went to bed soon after.
