Day trip to Connemara

Sometimes the impromptu trips are the best. I had a free day so I headed off to Connemara. My grandparents were born there and I’ve lots of memories of going on holiday and being amazed at how rural it was (compared to where we lived in the UK at the time). I left home without […]
