Trips and Itineraries for Clonakilty

The very first post I wrote about my time in this wonderful country was titled 'Ireland - 50 Shades of Green, Blue & Beer' - you can find this on my website titled Nomadic Lives (for some insightful reading, I promise); here are some useful links: 7 Travel Lessons from my 1st Independent Excursion - http://nomadiclives.com/travel/7-travel-lessons-1st-independent-excursion/ Ireland - 50 Shades of Green, Blue & Beer - http://nomadiclives.com/travel/ireland/ireland-50-shades-green-blue-beer/ 11 Irish Facts & Myth Busters - http://nomadiclives.com/travel/ireland/11-irish-facts-myth-busters/ Coming back to the point at hand, I believe I managed to capture a lot of what makes Ireland special in that one single title. ...

Weekend Getaways from Clonakilty  

My last day in Ireland was definitely an emotional one. Even then, I decided to cover maximum places I could to make the most of the day. This is the day I understood what the coming days of solo traveling would look like! I walked up to the National Museum of Archaeology, National Gallery of Ireland, Kilmainham Gaol, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Guiness Brewery, and lastly went for shopping at Penneys and at Carrol’s Irish Gifts. I actually got lost that day when I was trying to reach Kilmainham Gaol. And that’s when I plugged in my earphones, started the Rick Steves Audio guide, and listened to Ireland’s history while I walked towards the Gaol (45 minutes walk), which closed down the minute I reached there! ???? I learned a lot about problem-solving, and managing my emotions in times of crisis that day!


About Clonakilty

Clonakilty is the next sizable town on your way to Ireland's south-westernmost tip. Small town-center and no great attractions be seen - use merely as a pit-stop to re-stock and recoup. You could fancy a stroll through it's pretty lanes for a few minutes, but trust me there's prettier hamlets just around the corner!
