A Windy Stop in Clifden Connemara Ireland



On a wet and windy April afternoon we stopped in Clifden, Co. Galway for lunch. It was so wet it was foggy. CAM joked that “the fog wasn’t really fog, it was because in Ireland the rain clouds are so heavy they’re almost on the ground”.
But getting a little wet in the rain has never deterred us from taking a walk especially when a good leg-stretch will blow out mental cobwebs gathered from sitting in the car all the way from Dublin. We took a walk down towards the harbor, on a path that was signposted “Sli na Slainte” – that’s Gaelic for “healthy walk”.


At the bottom of the hill, I got this great shot looking back across the bay at the town.


The wind had picked up even more as we made our way back to our car. My kids stood, feet planted wide apart, trying to see if the wind could blow them down or at least blow off a jacket.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    The street shot actually looks like it could be Main Street USA (without the stone cathedral, of course) – so colorful and charming.
