On our way we see a lot of beautiful places...




This is the Kylemore Abbey Castle... we think it is the most beautiful castle in Ireland


I need such a little lake in front of my house but for this I first need a house...


in search of a campsite....


The view out of our tent...

Day 15....time flies....

short lunchstop...


nice little castle


and another highlight in Ireland... Cliffs of Moher
I think it cost about 6 or 8 for the carpark...only advantage, a container for all our stuff like helmets etc...





and again 2 p.P. for this tower... but we thought it was not worth it


you could also make a boat trip...

apparently each year 3 people fall down....most of them because they were drunk..




it was really warm...


on the right you can see the new path...on the left is the old path on the cliff


looks gruesome...like he is waiting for something...


at the campsite we first needed something to eat...


tasty uncle ben's mixture

Finally some time to post something... the story has to end sometime

Day16.... Today we are going to Dublin... after we drove past the campsite for three times and asking nearly everybody where we can find this, we finally found it...


Shorts and then let's go to the city by bus...








New motorcycle boots?

Fantastic. I'm glad you had a good time in the U.K. and Ireland and you seem to have had reasonably good weather.

It looks like you two had an awesome trip. Thanks for taking us along with you.

I was hoping that you would finish up the ride report some time.

By the way I love my KLR too.
