In May 2018 I did it again - I drove to Ireland myself. This time via Great Britain. I took the ferry to Dover, made a (too) short detour through Cornwall and eventually took the ferry from Fishguard to Rosslare. From there I drove pretty much directly to Achill Island. Highlights of the trip have been a visit on Clare Island, kayaking on Keel lake and Lough Accorymore, a short detour to the Loop Head in county Clare and again Achill itself.
