Galway and Limerick Ireland

Submitted by Gretchen Bursch Travel St Cloud
Two great days visiting the west coast of Ireland. The weather has been perfect with high 50s in to the 60s and sunny. Yesterday we visited the beautiful Kylemore Abbey....truly amazing ...even the gardens were nice to see without being in bloom. One of the best things to buy there is the chocolate made by the nuns. We then made our way to Galway for the evening. We stayed at the Jurys Inn great location because the pedestrian walking street with the pubs and shops was just out our door. Today we visited Rathbaun Farm where we learned so much about running the farm raising sheep even got to see Ted the border collie herd some of the sheep. Then it was in for some fresh homemade scones. The afternoon was spent at the Cliffs of Moher... What a spectacular place the cliffs looming 700 feet high with the Atlantic ocean crashing below was breathtaking. In Limerick tonight and had a pint in a really fun pub called Michael Martins... Had fun visiting with the locals
