Dublin to The Burren

Woke up to a wet morning and worried that the day was going to continue being wet. Packed up the car and headed off in the rain to Galway. About a half hour down the road the rain had stopped, and we then had a beautiful warm sunny day for the rest of the day!!! Galway is a lovely town We parked and walked to the town square and had lunch at a very old pub. The food, atmosphere and the furnishings were fabulous but we forgot to take any photos to show you! We wandered down ‘Shop Street’, a well known street that locals and tourists frequent. It was full of people. I couldn’t get over the huge crowd! There were also buskers everywhere….and human statues…and actors! Very entertaining! Some were a little odd though I must admit 🙂 We walked right along the boardwalk by the river and took some photos. There were many extentions to the river around the town and weirs for the Salmon. The place is well known for it’s Salmon. We took a couple of photos of men in the middle of the very fast flowing river trying to catch fish..either Salmon or Trout….we weren’t quite sure.

On the road again and we arrived at our Bed and Breakfast at The Burren. The name of the B&B is Cappabhaile House and it is lovely. We are so thankful to have some room after the last 2 nights at Dublin. We ventured out to the local for tea and once again were fed really well! I am beginning to look about 6 months pregnant! I don’t know how I am going to be able to do mainly music when I get back home. I joked about getting up at 6.30 in the morning and going for a jog….yeah right!..anyone that knows me well will know that that is an impossibility! I am NOT a morning person at all! The Burren is a lovely area. We are by the sea and we even went for a walk down the little jetty after tea.

We are off to Dingle tomorrow via the cliffs of Moher, and will be catching a ferry at Killimer! We had a beautiful sunset tonight so lets hope the fine weather will continue. Here are some photos of another lovely day…
