The second day in Ireland I got up early to join a tour around the west of Ireland. I had the fortune of meeting Alanna, a traveler from Minnesota, in Dublin for a couple of days. After talking a bit we realised that she was of Swedish orogin, so I got to teach her some small Swedish words and hopefully evoked a feeling of wanting to know more about her Swedish past.
Me and Alanna at the Cliffs of Moher.
We started of with a visit to the very picturesque town of Kinvara in the Galway Bay in Ireland where we got to see some really beautiful houses and a great view of the bay.

The houses in Kinvara are amazing!
We continued on along the cost towards The cliffs of Moher, but made a quick stop at the Baby Cliffs.

When we arrived at the Cliffs of Moher I was totally stunned about the work of nature. These cliffs are totally amazing and I'm so happy I got to see them. If you go visit, you have to be prepared to walk quite a bit and there are many steps and passages that lead you along the cliffs.

After the visit to the beautiful Cliffs of Moher the trip continued to the Bunratty Castle and we had something small to eat before we traveled back to Dublin. Back in Dublin me and Alanna went to a Irish restaurant in Temple bar and ended the day with a traditinal Guinness!
Finished off the day with a stop at The Temple Bar in the area of Temple bar.
