The Wild Atlantic Way with Dovechauffeurdrive and Dave Hogan my plate of fish and chips
Today was our day in beautiful Connemara, on the Wild Atlantic Way. What better way to begin my photo display than with a lovely Connemara pony ,pictured on a hillside near the harbour town of Roundstone.
Rita and Karlene pictured together at Gurteen Bay, near Roundstone.
Pictured on the coral beach near Ballyconneely.
This is the time of the year when the seaweed begins to break free from the rocks, and gets washed ashore, where it is gathered by local farmers, and used to fertilise the land. It can also be sold to the seaweed factories where it is processed for various uses, iodine in particular.
Sheep are no strangers to the Connemara roads, so drive carefully.
The town of Clifden is one of Ireland's most westerly towns, and is a must visit on your Wild Atlantic way tour.
Another lovely beach, where you can have a swim on your journey. Remember, we do have the Gulf Stream, so the water is not that cold.
Roundstone is another gem on your way around the Connemara coast.

This beautiful property was once upon a time the Ballinahinch railway station, and has been lovingly restored by its owners.
Tonight we dined in Moran's famous oyster and seafood bar in Kilcolgan, on the outskirts of Galway city. This is a very special, and very old pub, dating back to the eighteen hundreds, and i would highly recommend a visit here.
I just had to show you my plate of fish and chips.
Well, it is pretty obvious that everybody was more than pleased with their food.
A final picture of Rita and Karlene, on the roadside early today, with the morning fog still hanging over the Connemara mountains. What a gorgeous day this was.
