Today, we went to Kylemore Abbey, which is a castle and Gothic church that was built in the 1820's. To this day, it is still used as a nunnery and a boarding school for girls. (Thankfully, my parents decided against sending me there; it was very pretty there, though!)
After that, we went to the lovely Connemara National Park.
And...drumroll please...there was a park there! *Audience cheers*
And here's me, "ignoring my brothers and pretending I wasn't related to them." (My mom's words.)
Later, we stopped at Cleggan Strand. The sun came out just as we arrived, so we got very lucky!
Following our beach exploration, we ate dinner at a place called Oliver's Restaurant in Cleggan.
My mom wants you all to know that she tried Guiness with Black Currant today for the first time and couldn't believe that she waited so long. (Don't ask me why she waited.)
Before we went home and settled down for the night, we made a quick trip to SuperValu.
My mom and I would also like to note that we have been to a lot of grocery stores in Ireland (Aldi, Tesco, Lidl, etc.), but SuperValu is by far the best. It has a great selection and unbeatable prices, and is unrivaled by the rest of the stores.
Well, today has been pretty exciting. (Two blog posts in one day?! Unbelievable!) But now it has come to an end, and I must get some rest.
I hope you enjoyed your day, too!
