Doolin lies just north of the Cliffs of Moher and is a small little fishing village that does a good tourist trade. You can take boats from there to the Aran Islands or along the cliffs. We did try to take one of the cruises by the cliffs, but the seas were to rough and the did not have any sailing’s that day. Instead we stopped in at Gus O’Connor’s Pub for lunch. Turned out that for just fish and chips it would have been about $20 each! We walked a few doors down and bought sandwiches at a local quick stop type of store for a total of $10. 

Gus O’Connor’s Pub. Built in 1832 is a classic. One of the things we found with all pubs, is the lack of smoking inside. It was nice to be able to go in and not be overwhelmed with smoke, but if you zoom in on this picture you can tell all of the smokers are standing right at the front door.


For non-panoramas look here:

A beautiful coastline is acutely the start (or end) of the Burren

We stood around a while waiting to see if they were going to be able to go sailing that day

Moss growing in the rocks, is this Irish green?

The coast was beautiful, but not very hospitable
