Killary Harbour and Kylemore Abby
Ireland's only Fjord is in Killary Harbour. It's a shame we were out there on a bank holiday because they had a wool musuem. One of those living museum things where they demonstrate carding, spinning and weaving. Truth is, I can show the kids that stuff any day of the week at home, but it would have been cool for them to see the whole sheep-to-shirt process.
I wanted to steal the Sweeney's hotel sign for Mum. I mean, everyone knows she's just a boarding house for us to visit and gorge on comfort food and back scratches from the master, I just figured we ought to make it official, hehe.
