Arriving at Dublin Airport, we picked up the car and headed to Galway. Less than 2 hours later we arrived at Jameson Court in a self-catering apartment, in the seaside suburb of Galway town. The next day we explored the Burren to the south, and on our final day in Galway, we wandered round the town of Galway

From Galway to Castlebar was a very pleasant days drive through Connemara. We stayed in a B&B for 2 nights near Castlebar (when we eventually found it), and explored the Sligo coast the next day

From Castlebar it was more of the ins and outs of the Sligo coast to reach the Driftwood Hotel overlooking the sea at Rosses Point on the outskirts of Sligo town. The next day was spent at Ballynafad and down the Roscommon coal mine

More of the Wild Atlantic Way to get to our B&B in Greencastle, Donegal, and from there we did the last stretch of the Atlantic Way

A 4 hour drive to Kells took us to the Headfort Hotel once again. Apparently the Boys were wrong in there belief that they had seen Mrs Duff before. The Headfort has the advantage of being under an hours drive from Dublin Airport, and from thence back to Alicante
