Loop Head

A few impressions from the Loop Head peninsula in Co. Clare.  Loop Head was recently voted, best place to holiday in Ireland. That might be a bit of an exaggeration, but the landscape around the Bridges of Ross and light house is truly stunning.

The light house on Loop Head is open to the public since 2013.

Loop Head is also home to thousands of sea birds, there are large colonies  of sea gulls guillemots and kittiwakes.

And that's it for today, next stop, the Bridges of Ross. But first....holidays! We are going on holidays today, so there will be no updates the next two weeks.
