Day 4 Tarbert
The wind, the wind. Oh! It was ferocious all day and in our face. We had a very good full Irish breakfast, well most of us did, which put us off to a good start. A short decent was followed by a steep climb needing more gears than most of us had, and those that had them were struggling to hold the front end down. As we looked to our left we saw Doonagore castle, built in the 16th century as a stronghold from marauders with its walled enclosure. Currrntly owned by an an Irish American John Gorman. The next feature was the Cliffs of Moher just a few km down the road and well worth a brief stop. Next stop after Spanish Point was Quilty for a brew and a cake at the deli, followed by sandwich and brew in Doonbeg at 1pm. We needed the rest after fighting the wind all morning. We followed the.minor coast roads up and down as far as Killkee and then the wind was behind us for quite a way as we were now heading east. Heaven - well almost. The ferry from Killimer goes every half hour so we had
another brew and cake at the store before crossing the Shannon and heading to our Hostel in Tarbert for a well earned rest.
