Departing Ballyvaughan we paused at the picturesque seaside village of Kinvarra, home of 11th century Dunguarie Castle, before passing through Galway to Oughterard and on to Clifden, another village rated amongst Irelands prettiest. Sharamore House our home for that evening is a few kilometres north of the town, overlooking the inlet from the ocean; the view of which we enjoyed from our room. Sue made us feel welcome and gave us important advice about Clifden; its one way street setup, eating venues and a recommendation that we travel the Sky Road around the inlet. At the Town Square, with dozens of people enjoying the sun outside one of the many pubs, we discovered a jewellery shop which all ladies should put on their ‘must visit’ list; O’Dalaigh Jewellers, in High St. A couple of items from their ‘Ripples in the Sand’ range accompanied us back home. The return to our B&B was via Sky Road and it is recommended for all; but take care as it is very narrow in places. John conducts fishing trips so when I saw fish on the breakfast menu, there was no hesitation in ordering it. It was scrumptious. The combination of Clifden and Sharamore House is a must for travellers along the west coast.
