After a few days in Ireland, I’m very glad that I got a chance to come back and see more of this beautiful country after my layover here last week. The first couple of days I was here I was over on the west coast, staying in Galway and driving up and down the “Wild Atlantic Way”. It was absolutely gorgeous. The fields were a rich and beautiful green, the ocean was a perfect blue-green, and the landscape was incredible. I had heard much about the west coast of Ireland and my expectations were pretty high, but everything has lived up to them.
As with Iceland, I could go on about the beauty of the landscapes and the drives around the coast, but it would be easier to just check out my Flickr album that includes all of those photos. It really was amazing, and I’m glad I got a chance to drive around and see it (even though the roads in rural Ireland are extremely narrow and difficult to navigate in the dark).
For the next couple of days I’ll be exploring more of Dublin and relaxing before traveling onwards to Lisbon!
