The next 2 days we spent wandering our way up the West Coast of Ireland hopping on and off the Wild Atlantic Way We made our way from Kilcooly up thrugh the Cliffs of Moher and ending the day in an even more remote Bed and Breakfast in Clifden, Co. Galway.
We took a ferry, ate some chocolate, saw some amazing abbey ruins, loads of gorgeous landscapes and countless sheep! The folks in Ireland are all the most lovely people – there really is something magical about the Emerald Isle.
The Cliffs of Moher are one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen. They were enormous, and breathtaking.

Decide today to grant your highest wish to visit Ireland’s most spectacular natural wonder at the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way – the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience.
After wandering the cliffs and hours of me driving on a side of the road neither my mom or I was used to we decided we needed some sustenance! We accidentally came upon an incredible chocolate factory, shop and cafe. Hazel Mountain Chocolate has been consistently voted one of the best in Ireland. We had a lovely chat in the shop with a worker who is an obvious chocolate enthusiast, then we made our way to the cafe where we grabbed a coffee and each got a slice cake to go.
From the chocolate shop, it was another 3 hours to our final destination. We stopped and had dinner ‘in town’ at Clifden where we were treated to some traditional Irish stew and music. Night didn’t truly fall until around 1130pm. The Ocean Villa B & B was set on a small inlet and surrounded by wild landscape and some beautiful horses and sheep. We slept soundly that night after a full day of sight seeing and driving.
