Into the West

Posted on April 27, 2006, under general.

I havn’t blogged much in the last two weeks, due to being insanely busy in work. But to take a break from the world, myself and Nóirín drove to Mayo for the Easter weekend, which we spent staying in Ballina and driving around all of Mayo (and I do mean all). We stayed in a great B & B called Quignalegan House and from there went as far afield as Belmullet, Westport, Sligo and everywhere in between. We got a chance to do the Céide fields tour and a visit to the Musuem of Country Life.

On our last day, we also stopped to have a yummy barbeque, using one of those disposable portable bbq things, worked out great;

(we cleanup up afterwards, nothing was left behind). All over the Mayo, the views were absolutely amazing, the great cliffs, hills, forests, wind farms, bog and roads forming an incredible landscape everywhere. I really wish I’d taken more photos. Highly recommended part of the country. It was great to just get away from everything and just spend some time with Nóirín before she jetted off to Munich again.
