Chauffeurdriven trip to the Cliffs of Moher with Janice and Marissa on Irish tour.

Today was our day to visit the Burren of County Clare, and the Cliffs of Moher.

I collected the ladies at the Harbour hotel in Galway, and brought them on a brief tour of the city, starting out at the Galway University.
In the picture above, we have, on the left, Janice, and Marissa, together in the quadrangle of the old University buildings, with the Aula Maxima, (the great hall) in the background. This University was one of four Universities built during the reign of Queen Victoria, The other three being in Dublin, Cork, and Belfast.
Here we have a very excited Marissa, who has an engineering
degree, when she discovered this picture of Alice Perry, an engineering graduate from Galway University, who was the first woman ever to gain an engineering degree in Ireland or Great Britain.   Marissa is happily following in her footsteps.
In this picture, we have Marissa, and yours truly, me being a former student at this famous University.
Well if Marissa got her  photo with me, then it was only fair to let Janice have a picture with me also.
From the University we moved on to the beautiful Galway Cathedral, and in this picture above, we have the ladies, pictured together, standing in the main aisle of this magnificent church.
A picture of the ladies in front of the main altar. This fabulous church was officially opened in 1965 by Cardinal Cushing from the USA.


Then it was on to the Burren of county Clare, a region which was once upon a time the ocean floor, and the famous Poulnabrone Dolmen, an ancient Portal tomb. This tomb has been dated somewhere in the region of five and a half thousand years and six and a half years old. The tomb can be seen in the background, to Marissa's left, and unfortunatly this was as close as we were allowed to get to it, as there has been some recent damage done to the tomb by vandals, disguised as human beings.
These locals were more than curious, and despite the barren area they were living in, they did not look in the least bit underfed.


Now we were on to Lisdoonvarna, and the famous matchmaking town, the place to go if you are looking for a wife or a husband. The main matchmaking festival is held here in September, and i think, that if my two ladies were here during that month, they would have had no problem finding a husband.
In this picture, they are standing outside the famous matchmaker Bar, in the main street.


Right next door to the Matchmaker bar is the local police station. 
The ladies found this hilarious and just had to have their picture taken outside the police station.
At last, the magical Cliffs of Moher, and how lucky we were to have the dry day that we had today to spend time here, as the forecast had been for a rainy day. We certainly did not complain, and we all enjoyed a really nice day in the Burren, and at the Cliffs.
Another lovely picture of the ladies at the Cliffs.

This had been a very special day and one i know that the ladies enjoyed very much, as i did myself in lovely company.
Tomorrow we are on our way to Killarney, one of my favourite Irish towns. Come along and enjoy.

I am taking bookings for 2018 already, so if you are interested in taking a tour with Dovechauffeurdrive, then let me know soon.
