First, i want to thank those who answered my questions in this Forum.
Banged my tire in a rut, then hit a curb, resulting in a flat tire by the time I reached the B&B.
We spent 3 nights at a great B&B, the Sea View House. The owners helped us with so many issues.
Drove to Monk's in Ballyvaughn, then down the coastal road back to Doolin. It was after this when my friend said she wasn't going in the car with me anymore . . . Beautiful drive that neither of us got to see.
That same night we had booked for the Doolin Music House, which was a neat experience. It was touching to hear the history of music in County Clare from one who had a part in it.
We walked a small portion of the cliff walk the next day (neither of us were in shape to do to much). Shopped (bought the obligatory Aran sweaters). Took it easy. That evening she let me drive her to the Cliff's visitor center, where we spent an hour stunned at the views.
Following day was a boat trip to Inis Orr, did the pony and cart guided tour. Ate at Ned's. Shopped. The ferry took us out under the cliffs after that, which was great! Stopped at Gus O'Conners for the early Sunday music session.
Most meals were at the Ivy Cottage or Gus O'Conners. Loved them both, but especially Ivy Cottage.
Because of the lost day, and my inability to immediately grasp the concept of driving on the left, we did not explore the ancient sites on 480. But we did get to see a lot of nuns and priests (Father Ted Festival). I loved Doolin, but not the roads around it. It maybe should have been my last stop, after gaining more experience.
Next we drove to Killarney (using mostly N and M roads, lol). Next installment will be in the Killarney forum.
