Wild Atlantic Way, Day Two
Having worked up an appetite after climbing the cliffs of Moher, we headed to the Doolin Hotel and had a fantastic dinner of locally sourced fare, expertly prepared by the hotel chef. Just what the doctor ordered! The next day, fully rested we enjoyed a full Irish Breakfast with freshly baked scones and muffins made in house by the excellent pastry chef, just the thing to set us on our way.
As we drove up the coast the glacial landscape was a sight to behold, large boulders dotted the fissured limestone on the coastal side while pastoral fields led the way inland. Rare arctic species of flora occupied some of the fissures creating the illusion of a collection of hundreds of miniature bonsai gardens.
