We will be traveling to Ireland in May. The first part of the trip will be on a boat on the Shannon River. We plan on spending the remaining 9 days staying at Bed and Breakfasts in the western region. We will have two nights in Clifden, one in Galway and two in Doolin. My husband discovered Achill Island and is intrigued with it. Does anyone have any experience staying on the island and if so are there any B & B's you would recommend. I'm also looking at the Westport area. We will be picking up a car at the Knock airport and heading west from there. This is our second trip to Ireland and really liked the western area the last time.
