Monday (continued)

The tour stopped for lunch at Gus O'Connors Pub in Doolin. I think that the 180 year old pub was mainly selected because they could feed a bus load of tourists quickly, but the food wasn't bad. Like many pubs, we selected a table, got the number off the table and ordered at the bar, with the food being brought out just a few minutes later. I had beef and Guinness stew and Linda had fish & chips. We got to know several other couples during the three day tour and at this meal we shared a table with a couple from Toronto.

There was a little extra time after the meal and Linda visited a couple of shops while I photographed some of the nearby countryside and ocean shore. The nice little Aille River was just over the road from the pub, but when I walked a short distance up the road, I discovered that I could see a stretch of the Atlantic and cliffs which lead south.
