As mentioned in a previous post, I was able to spend the last bit of time in Ireland. It was a great trip and I really enjoyed getting outside of Dublin.
If you’re looking for a nice day trip from Dublin I would recommend Galway (a two hour train ride away) and then if you really want to adventure further afield try Cliffs of Moher-about another 90 minutes from Galway by car.
There are a few ways to get from Dublin to Galway to the Cliffs but I found the combo of train and car to be a nice balance. Be warned that if you do drive it’s as scary as it seems to drive on the other side of the road. I may have lightly tapped two parked cars enroute. No one was hurt, nothing to see here folks.
I only had a few hours at the Cliffs and really would have liked to stay longer but also enjoyed my time in both Dublin and Galway. Most surprisingly was the great food I found in both cities! I have to say-the Irish aren’t known for their food but they seemed to have stepped up their game lately.
Some snaps below. It’s always such a treat to get out in nature.
Proper pints of Bulmers and Guinness in Dublin. Bulmers is better on ice though.
Adventure is out there! At the Cliffs of Moher.
Gorgeous sunrise run in Galway. #nofilter needed here.

Galway’s “edgy” side.
Just a happy picture in Galway.
