    Overnight Trip for the bank holiday

    There was a bank holiday and we decided to take a longer trip to the west of the country. Every visitor to Ireland visits the Cliffs of Moher. It is a 3 hour drive so I thought would be better to get a hotel. We were were not able to get a hotel room on […]
