Clare Island

We said goodbye to Galway Bay on Wednesday when we rounded Slyne Head on the way to Inishbofin. This evening we said hello to Clew Bay when we arrived at the little harbour at the SE corner of Clare Island.

This is where Granuaile, or Grace O'Malley had her base, and we can see the remains of her castle overlooking the harbour.

Tomorrow looks like another early start to catch the tide round Achill Head. The sound of the wind outside our cosy cabin makes us wonder if we will be able to go. Nonetheless, the alarm must be set!
