If we were already in Ireland, it would have been silly to go home with only having seen Dublin. So after the run ensued a roadtrip to the Irish countryside! :)
We slept the nights before and after ASCA at the fancy Clarion Hotel at the airport and then early in the morning after the ASCA we rented a car and drove off to the west. We had two days and were about to make the most of it!
We first stopped at the Trim Castle:
We drove on until we could and then slept in the car. In the morning of course i insisted on coffee so we stopped at the cutest little gas station we'd seen:
On our way to the Cliffs of Moher we passed Poulnabrone Dolmen, where the wind and rain made it almost totally unenjoyable. But to be frank i didnt quite understand what was there to admire anyway... its like a clumsy stone pile.
Had to get some workout after the drivearound in Ireland so i went out early in the morning, before we took off to the airport. Ran around a residential neighbourhood right behind DUB airport.
