Last Easter breaks, we took the kids over to Clifden in Connemara for a 3 night break and stayed at the Station House Clifden. It was a great time and the kids absolutely LOVED it!
I had hoped to do a few things which we didn’t get to do last time we were there.
1). I wanted to visit the Glengowla Mines – but is not an option – they close on Nov 1st!
2). Connemara Seaweed Bath – didn’t get to it.
3). We’ll spend a day in Galway and hopefully a day in Westport. didn’t do!
4). Kylemore Abbey – didn’t bother – drove by!
5). Omey Island – driver over the sands to the island – only if the tides are right! YES! We did that.
Omey Island is a great place to explore. But you can only get there during low tide – so you have to wait to get off the island if you lived there. The tides were great if anything we were early so we were unsure about it being too soft but it was fine!!
As we started to drive on the island down one of the couple roads, we had to stop due to all the cows on the road.
We left the car and started to walk down towards the beach which was so nice – would be amazing in the summer – clear!!
As I’m always taking the photos of the kids and never in the photos, we took a couple selfies! 🙂
Soren found me a couple pieces of sea glass!

As we were walking back to our car, I was not interested in going by all the cows on the path in case they charged at the kids – so we opted to take a bit of a longer path back across the beach. We then met up with the farmer who told us his cows were friendly but with kids they can mistake them for dogs and be problem. He explained to Soren that he grew up there as a kid his age, had to wait for the teacher each day who would come over depending on the tides, so school times were based on the tides.
We went down to explore Glassguian Beach which was so pretty – again, imagine in the summer!
