Sailing north in a small weather window before more wind/storms arrived we made it to Clifden before hunkering down on the floating mooring buoy for a day whilst it lashed a force 8 outside. Filled the day in reading, watching movies on the laptop rocking around on the waves. The following day we were able to get ashore and walk the streets and sights. We walked the Sky Road loop which forms part of the tourist route marketed as the Wild Atlantic Way. The sky road walk around the peninsular (past where Red Roo was floating under the castle ruins) to the head land and back in on the next inlet. A 26km route, with half of it providing spectacular views and the other half not so much!
