    Connemara, Ireland

    September 8, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    We made it to Galway yesterday and headed out for a bus tour to Connemara which is off the beaten track full of untouched scenery, ruins and a castle! I'm glad we decided not to rent a car for this trip around Ireland because driving on the left hand side on rolling hills and narrow lanes would have been stressful in itself not to mention the occasional sheep crossing the road!

    Our first stop was the Kylemore Abbey built in the 19th century by Sir Mitchell for his wife. No not my Sir Mitchel but at least he got the hint ;)

    Afterwards we made several stops to take in the scenic views which speak for themselves and had been exactly what I imagined Ireland to be like...cold, rainy and beautiful!
