Fishing at Tang

Wanted to go for some activities this time instead of just seeing some places. Found out a place for fishing after a lot of searches and phone calls. It was at a place called Tang, around 20KM from Athlone. One day before we went there to check the place and booked two boats. Next day with all preparations we six reached there in the morning. An old man was running it as a part time business there. He gave as two boats, life jackets, gears & prey for fishing. With lot of excitement & thrill we started our fishing. Till evening we spent there with the boats, had the food in between,which we were carrying. But didnt get even a single fish :) none of us were neither experts in fishing nor has the patience. So we just enjoyed the boating and it was a great fun.

The weather was good, it was getting cloudy at times but did not rain. Overall it was a good experience and a must go.

Cliffs of Moher

The second time I am seeing this place (first visit). This time the weather was too good, it was a sunny day and the sky was very clear & blue. Cliffs of Moher is listed in the top 28 in the global online campaign for the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Final list will be selected on 11.11.11.

Morning 9.30 we started and by evening 5.30 we came back. It was about 150KM drive one way.

Cliffs of Moher.

I will call it as Irish Vagamon, wicklow is a hilly area near Dublin City. Many roads & places are very similar to Vagamon in Kerala (well somewhat...). On the way we visited Bray beach and Powerscourt waterfall, which is considered as the tallest waterfall in Ireland. But I found its very small compared to Hogenakkal waterfalls & Athirapally waterfalls.

It was a very sunny day and so we could see lot of tourists all over places. We spent the night in Dublin city and visited Kildare village while returning on the next day. It is a shopping area where you can find many factory outlets and the prices are very cheap too.
