Ireland 2014 – Part IV – Off to the West Coast

Limerick, Shannon River, King John’s Castle, Bunratty Castle

We got up very early, had a quick coffee and got ready for our first day tour, which started at 6.50 am. Imagine how excited we all were. The Cliffs of Moher, one of the most famous places in Ireland.
Our first stop was Limerick and the river Shannon, greeted by King John’s Castle. Back on the coach our next stop was at Bunratty Castle. It was raining nonstop, but it didn’t stop us from taking pictures.

Cliffs Of Moher

Back on the road again the landscape began to change more and more, and the closer we got to the west coast the more excited we got.
Beautiful and impressive. Majestic. The Cliffs of Moher. We could have spent hours just walking along the cliffs…

The Burren

After our lunch stop in the village of Doolin our coach took us to one of Ireland’s greatest National Parks, the Burren. Another beautiful place along Ireland’s West Coast.

Corcomroe Abbey

Our next stop was Corcomroe Abbey, built in the 12th century on an old pagan site.

Galway Bay / Dunguaire Castle

As our coach took us along the coastline to the seaside village of Kinvara it didn’t take long and we reached one of the most impressive castle in Ireland, Dunguaire Castle. Again I could have spent hours there…

After a long but brilliant day it was now time to make our way back to Dublin. We took the Galway road through Clarinbridge, had another coffee stop somewhere along the road and made it back to the East Coast safe and sound.
