Finally there is a break in the weather and all in good time for this Easter Bank Holiday weekend. The ferry's are up and running again to the Aran Islands from Doolin pier ( always a sign that summer is on its way)! Nice to see Claire Garrihy from Doolin2Aran Ferries back in action for the season ahead.
My first customer of the day was a lovely man who had visited me this time last year to purchase a gift for his wife. He was returning to say hello and buy a matching pair of earrings to add to what he calls her "vast collection" His love for Doolin brings him here annually as he appreciates the surrounding beauty of the area and in particular the solitude that one can experience at this time of the year before the masses arrive. I suggested he coincide his visit next year with the wonderful Writer's Week which takes place in Hotel Doolin. Its always a pleasure to see a familiar face come into my shop.
