Next week, I head to my favourite part of the world to enjoy a short break in the company of old friends. I always say… there’s no better place than Connemara for enjoying healthy fresh air which comes straight in off the Atlantic. It sure blows away the cobwebs and refreshes you, ready to take on whatever life throws at you next.
And, there’s no better place to enjoy a pint of Guinness® either. As Arthur’s Day coincides with our holiday, I’ve no doubt we’ll join in the worldwide celebration and raise a pint to Arthur.
For those who’ve never been to Connemara, I can highly recommend it. It’s hard to put into words what it is about the place that draws me back year after year. This video says it better than I ever could…
‘Bike Ride in Connemara’ by Ralph Lavelle, June 2009
Glad to read that your breather is a break in Connemara, not a break from blogging 🙂
Enjoy your well earned break.
Lily – Thanks! I shall be thinking of you and Tommy as you fly overhead, en route to the US. I’ll look forward to hearing the first update.
Have a wonderful time.
Hope you have a fantastic break Steph, BG Xx
Achelois & Bendy – Cheers! I wish I could share Connemara with you as well. You’d love it!
Have a wonderful time with your friends way over in the West! Come back refreshed and healthy and ready to blog again.
Grannymar – I’ll do my best, thanks!
I’m so glad to hear you’re heading West. Enjoy a pint of plain and some yummy sea food – the oyster season has just started. If you do make it to Bofin – be sure to get a pound of crab meat from the lovely lady who lives just down the road from Murray’s hotel – I can’t even think of enough superlatives to describe how delicious it is. Check out the Clifden Arts Festival – you might catch some shows!
I hope you have an absolute ball – you soooo deserve it.
Ann – Thanks. I’m drooling just thinking of the delicious fresh crab open sandwiches in Oliver’s. I’m partial to mussels grilled with garlic breadcrumbs in Moran’s too!
Clifden Arts Festival is on the list too. Connemara here we come!
