Exploring the Wild Atlantic Way






It’s exactly a year since Ben, Nicole, Steve and I were in Canada together. This year we took a trip to Ireland; it was really chilled, filled with open fires, pub dinners and rugged coastlines. It also gave us the opportunity to catch up, as it’s very rare that all four of us are together in one place!

We joined Ben and Nicole for the second half of their trip. We flew to Dublin and then travelled to West Ireland to a little place called Fanore. Ben found an awesome place on Airbnb called Fermoyle Cottage, it was in the middle of the countryside and perfect for a catch up with friends.

Fanore is along the Wild Atlantic Way; this coastline seems so untouched and has remnants of ancient forts spotted along its winding roads. Our favourite place was the Cliffs of Moher; we visited here twice and the second time we witnessed the most beautiful sunset. It’s times like this that make you feel lucky to have friends who love to travel and visit new places. Steve and I’s trips away usually centre around where we’re going to eat next, so one of the highlights was definitely the fish and chips we had at Vaughans Anchor Inn, Liscannor. If you visit the Cliffs of Moher, it’s only a 10 minute drive away.

On the day Steve and I flew back we got up early and travelled to Dublin. We had a quick walk around Temple Bar, finding a great coffee place called Roasted Brown and then grabbed lunch with Ben and Nicole at the Winding Stair. This place was on recommendation from Jake and it didn’t disappoint!

The trip went so quickly, but made me even more excited for our next trip away.

Have you ever been to Ireland?
