Day 5 Doolin to Galway via Aillwee Cave and Kinvara
Updated: Sep 9, 2019
Co. Clare is host to one of the largest areas of megalithic monuments in Europe. Today we will visit the famous Cliffs of Moher, Ailwee Cave and Dunguaire Castle in Kinvara, We will overnight in Galway.
We will start the day with a session on fine-tune editing the video projects from Dingle. Then, from the charming sea side village of Doolin, we will continue north to the beautiful fishing village of Ballyvaughan where we will break for lunch and then head up into the Burren, a karst limestone region of Ireland which is home to the one of the highest concentrations of megalithic monuments in Europe. We will visit the Ailwee Cave and take the tour into the depths of the cave then, time permitting we will take a quick visit to The Polnabrone Dolmen, a small portal dolmen but one of the most photographed in Ireland due to its location. After a long day on the road we will continue on Hazel Mountain Artisan Chocolate makers and then to Kinvara where we will stop off to shoot and take a relaxing walk around. Kinvara bay is home to Dunguaire Castle which hosts (kitsch but fun) medieval banquets in the summer. The last leg of the day will be to our hotel in Galway.
Over the course of the day we will be driving for blocks of 1.5-2 hours and during this time we will offer one-one coaching on editing your project that you shot yesterday. All going to plan, by the time we get to our hotel in Galway we should have 14 stories ready to review and give feedback. After dinner we will have some free time to wander around Galway and choose from one of the many great pubs the town has to offer, but our bus will be departing for the hotel from Galway around 10pm. The hotel is located in the heart of the Irish Gaeltacht about 15-20mins outside Galway city.
