I love getting to a new country and hitting the road. Lots of new places to discover. Problem is I cant bring my car with me but luckily enough I found a beautiful Audi at https://www.cheapcarhiredublinairport.co.uk/ which drove like a dream.
I headed out of Dublin Airport and went west for Galway. I love this city but getting past it into Connemara and the stunning rural west is where I really wanted to be. Some gorgeous beach roads and very friendly people.
I headed south then through Limerick and Clare heading for Cork. West Cork is a big fave for me. Clonakilty or Clon as the locals say is a great place to spend some time.
I still had holiday time to get to Kerry and maneuver some of their less shall we say “main” roads with more twists and turns than a game of snakes and ladders. Back to Dublin and back on the plane…great trip!
