Ireland's North and West in a Weekend

From time to time the motley crew that is the University of Teesside year of '85 BA Industrial Design get together for a reunion, and this time we decided to visit one of our number who lives in Westport, Co. Mayo. I decided that I'd like to go over on the GS and have a bit of a look round a country I've never visited and drink Guinness in the evenings with the lads.

This is what I ended up doing, about 1150 miles starting from Inverness in Scotland.



After a night in the glamourous Kilmarnock Travelodge I got to the ferry at Larne in good time.



From Larne I headed up the Antrim coast to my first stop at the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. This originally allowed fisherment to reach a small island to land their catch.


Lots of squealing and shouting (not by me, ahem) as the bridge was crossed. It wasn't that bad...



Small cottage and crane to land the fish.



It was a fair walk to the bridge from the carpark, so I was already in trouble timewise. This is not unusual. Next stop about 10 miles down the road, Ireland's World Heritage Site: The Giant's Causeway
