It's our last day in Ireland, and if there is one word I would pick to describe our time here it would be unexpected. Every time we turn around it seems like Ireland surprises us. The changing terrain, the amazing food, the variety of activities on offer, the weather - we're never quite sure what's going to greet us as we go around each bend in the road.
Right after our walk we went to Dingle. It was love at first sight! Dingle is a quaint town located on the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry.
We drove around the Peninsula, and it was spectacular.
Our next destination was Inishmore, the northern most of the three Aran Islands. There are rock walls everywhere, and the soil inside them was formed by composting seaweed and sand. It might make these some of the most labour intensive plots of land ever.
You go to Inishmore as a foot passenger, so our tour of the island was done the old-fashioned way.
I have never seen so many sweaters in my life as I did on this small Aran Island. The wool fumes were incredible!
Our next destination was Galway. We visited the famous Cliffs of Moher. After our harrowing time on the Pembrokeshire Coastal path in Wales two years ago we were all very relieved to see that there was a safety barrier at these cliffs.
We encountered midges. I don't recommend this as a positive travel experience.
This is Kylemore Abbey, located near Connemara National Park.
Connemara is so different than the area where we did our walk. It reminded us of Montana. Never would I have guessed there would be a place in Ireland that would look like the big skies of that state!
There are a few other pictures I want to share from my journey through Ireland, but they will have to wait until I get home. It's time for us to eat breakfast and head to Dublin, the last stop in our Irish adventure.
