I’d love to know the story of this “house” near the Cliffs of Moher. What a place! It looks to me like someone has decided to build their own castle during the last few years. Work was still going on when we drove past this place
In this case, a person’s house is literally their castle.

We’ve heard a lot about the Connemara ponies since we’ve been in Ireland but these lovely ones were in County Clare:
A couple of serious fellows with one of the best views in Ireland … looking out to the Aran Islands.
And who could resist these two … just sitting in the front yard of someone’s house, lapping up the afternoon sun.

Over the weekend, we visited the Cliffs of Moher at County Clare. It was mighty windy and cool but the air was clear and we had a great view.
It was strange to be looking out to see Inis Meàin (see the middle island below), rather than looking out to the Cliffs of Moher from Inis Meàin.

Great little flight across to the mainland, only about 8 minutes.
Clear views over the island and a good view of the airport and our house (far left, second house in view) …
The passenger ferry port …
… and the mainland.
And safely on the ground again.

There was no question about what the priest was hoping for at this roadside church in the Connemara mountains.

Jack and I spent the weekend visiting the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare and the Connemara mountains in County Galway and County Mayo. We’ll add some more pics over the next few days, but here are some of my favourite pics from the little town of Keel on Achill island in County Mayo where we stayed on Saturday night. These woolly, black-stockinged and black-faced pedestrians were all up and down the mountains and through the streets of the town.

This afternoon Pàraic showed us a traditional cris (waist band) that had been made by a local woman on the island. Pàraic’s daughter will wear this on her wedding day on the weekend.

Great spontaneous music at the pub on Inis Meàin on Saturday night with Cormac on the accordion, Luis on the guitar and Kate on the bodhrán (Irish drum).

I don’t seem to have noticed these little ones yesterday but they have popped up their heads today …
