Opposite the row of village shops is a river .. that's how small the village is!! (Actually it's not the smallest village we've seen .. one of smallest, is one we stayed in last year - Lumpley Stoke, near Bath, England - consisted of the pub, hotel and disused railway station!)
This is the pub in Doolin - well known the world over for it's traditional music! The Publican at a pub called The Thatch in Waterford told us about Doolin and it's music! Gosh, he was a helpful chappie and sat with us with our map sprawled in front of him circling the places we should visit - well, this was one of them .. so there we were ... outside the pub ... (no time to stop for a drink unfortunately as we had lots more to see on our way to Galway)
.. and found two music shops ...
... filled, floor to ceiling, with musical instruments and everything connected to traditional Irish music and dance ..
We travelled down to the end of the road to the port ..
