Today was our last day in Clare. A last chance to get to the things we missed. One thing we missed was the wedge tomb. We found it the first few times we came to Ireland but the last few times we visited, we missed it. Sean, our b&b host, drew it on a map for us and we still managed to miss it! So today was our last chance. After a few false starts we found it!
There was a church and an abbey on our map that we hadn’t seen before. Since we were really just driving around for a last look at the countryside, we decided to explore.
On to the Abbey. The Corcomree Abbey was also built in the 12th century. It was once part of a monastery. The first thing I noticed though was this heather.
And on to our last stop for today. I had to see the Cliffs once more.
Tomorrow we head to Bunratty, near Shannon. We will see the castle and the folk park and have our final pint. We fly home Tuesday……
