Usually, at the end of a holiday, all I want to do is to get to the airport and get home to my own bed. Not this time; the drive from Cliffs of Moher down to Loop Head was stunning and I only wish I’d had more time to drive the full scenic route to the Loop Head lighthouse and back.
The beach at Lahinch; a pleasant surfer’s pit stop.
Ruined church on the road to Loop Head lighthouse.
Tea and toilet stop in Loop Head at the Stella Maris Hotel (http://stellamarishotel.com/). Great soup and chips (yes, I know it’s a weird combination but I like it) and nice lavatories; spotlessly clean with hardwood panels for décor with decent soap and hand cream provided free of charge.
