Since I did not fancy a ferry crossing to Ireland, I flew to Belfast (just me and my handbag!) and Alan took our car (with all our luggage!) on the ferry and met me there and we drove down to Barna near Galway in Southern Ireland.
We stayed in a great hotel, The Twelve and they upgraded us to their best suite – it was awesome!
The people there are just fantastic! The scenery is breath-taking – very similar to Scotland. We visited the Cliffs of Moher and the small very pretty town of Westport.
We had lovely weather too and the food… well, you have never seen portions like these!!! Everything we ate was absolutely delish! My favourite was a little restaurant in Barna itself called Mulberry.
Below are a few of my photos, you can see more here.
