Wild Atlantic Way ASD Challenge Day 45: Letternoosh to Cleggan. The morning dawned bright and clear as we rallied with Paddy our driver and Teresa our lead support for the day. We headed for Letternoosh to pick up where we left off and we were delighted to have Alice and her friend Mairead waiting to join us. Outside Clifden we took the Skyroad heading North out by Claddaghduff. Tomás was leading the way. We skirted Streamstown Bay on our left, again with fascinating views of the islands beyond: Inishturk and Omey looked restful and inviting. Omey is connected to the mainland by a stretch of sand. Once again the company was great. Seán, Mairead’s husband joined us as did Catriona our B&B host of last night. In Claddaghduff we were treated to refreshments by Mary of Sweeney’s Bar. Inishbofin was clearly visible across a very calm Atlantic. Cleggan too was quiet and restful when we arrived. We said our goodbyes here and headed back to Clifden. Teresa and Paddy left us in Clifden but we know we’ll meet again. We have been very fortunate in our new found friends. Tomás and I headed for Abbeyglen Castle Hotel. A 19th Century Castle, Abbeyglen sits in a naturally occurring wood on the outskirts of Clifden. It exudes a sense of tranquility, with pleasant pathways to the beach and trees. We had a wonderful meeting with Nicola O’Malley who is a Story Massage practitioner, certainly worth exploring for all aspects of life. We availed of the afternoon coffee and scones. 6.30pm heralded a champagne reception and welcoming information session by Brian the proprietor. Brian is a joy to meet. We enjoyed a superb meal before retiring for the night, once again celebrating the great good will of those around us.
