13.03.2019- Travel Talk: Visiting the Wild Atlantic Way

Over the weekend, I was lucky enough to escape across to Ireland for a lovely (and very welcome!) three day break, staying at a beautiful house in Carraroe- a very remote but gorgeous spot along the Wild Atlantic Way. It was my first time exploring this awe-inspiring part of the world, and needless to say it well and truly lived up to the wild description- with every sort of weather imaginable bathing us in regular bouts of rain, sleet, hail, wind and sunshine, as well as the occasional thunder and lightning storms too! Exploring the coastal route, the rugged landscape of Connemara and the irresistible charm of Galway, it was impossible not to fall in love with this unique corner of Ireland: 

As well as hallmark dry stone walls and rolling green fields, Carraroe is also home to a truly stunning coral beach- a real natural wonder if ever there was one- and one which we braved some seriously strong winds to explore! Oughterard, in Connemara is another gem, and the drive to get there stands out as one of the most breathtaking I’ve experienced- complete with cows and sheep on the road, as well as a stop at Aughnanure Castle. Galway is a picture-perfect destination too, and one which is home to some one-of-a-kind shops and truly incredible foodie experiences (more on that soon!) Most special of all, too, was being able to share all of these experiences with some truly glorious company- and I’m so keen to return and explore more of this amazing part of the world soon.
