Train Trip West

I took a Railtours trip to Limerick, Clare and Galway last week. We stopped at Bunratty Castle, The Burren and The Cliffs of Moher. The day started by gathering at Heuston Station where we met one of our guide’s for the day and then we were on our way. When we got off the train, the first thing we did was to take a bus trip around Limerick City, where we saw the Treaty Stone and Thomond Park, the home of Munster Rugby. After this, we travelled to Bunratty Castle, where I took the first six photos below. I have been there before, but, I always enjoy walking around the Castle and Folk Park. We then moved on to amazing landscape of the Burren, where we passed a Famine Graveyard. After lunch, we moved on to The Cliffs of Moher, Ireland’s most visited Tourist Attraction outside of Dublin. I have been very lucky with the Cliffs, as I have visited twice and both times visibility was good, this area is known to have low visibility at certain times. After this, we went to Galway City where we were free to explore before we met at the Station to return to Dublin. These trips are always busy days, but, a lot of fun. I have included links below to all the places mentioned in this post. I used my Lumix LX100 for this trip, as I was travelling with someone who does not take photos.
