A bit of this and that from my Wild Atlantic Way experience


Black and White pudding side by side for breakfast.
I did try a small mouthful of the former, but I did not enjoy.

Prof. Tim Noakes will be happy about the butter,
less so about the bread!
But the Irish do GREAT carbs.

A Dublin street light

From the Dublin skyline…
Not I only need to see Mary Poppins

Don’t ask…
And YES, those are my legs reflected in the glass.

This motorist asked me to take her picture,
so I obliged.

From the Music Makers museum.

A typical Irish landscape

Barrtra Seafood Restaurant, Lahinch
I watched the sun disappear into the Atlantic Ocean while enjoying dinner here.

The beginning of my Cliffs of Mohr walk

Jack, the donkey…

Not sure if these horses had names.

If you got ’em,

A brightly coloured gift shop in Doolin

Harry Secombe is ALIVE.
I found him at the Roadside Tavern.

I got to see Doolin Caves and this mighty stalactite on the second attempt.
The first was thwarted by a power failure

Heather burning as seen from the Loophead Lighthouse

Many of these have been quaffed so far on our trip.
This particular pint was destined for a table in Finnegan’s Wine Cellar in Tralee

I got to experience some Irish culture at the theatre.
Tralee boasts the purpose built National Folk Theatre.

We will be seeing a LOT more of Kevin in the final few days of our tour.
He has been a great driver and an interesting chap to spend time with.
Thanks Kev…
