My friends Jan-Eis and Monique came to look us up in Ireland for a while. It was low season and we had a lot of time to spend with them as the campsite was not very busy at all. Jan-Eis is quite technical so he also helped us with some work to upgrade the toilet block and our computer system. It wasn't all work though and one day we decided to go and explore Connemara together.
From Ballyvary we drove to Westport and down to Louisburg. We drove through Doo Lough Valley and then continued on to Leenane, a village situated at the head of a 16 kilometer fjord by the name of Killary Harbour (where I spent many holidays as a kid) past Aasleagh Falls. We stopped at Kylemore Abbey, home of the Irish Benedictine nuns since 1920.
