TGIF: Wild Memories at Ardglass

A drive along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way is full of  breathtaking mountains and scenic beaches. During the final days of John Eagle’s Lighthouse Tour, we stopped by the delightful town of Ardglass in Northern Ireland.

Ardglass is a pleasant coastal resort town. According to Wikipedia, the Ardglass Golf Club won an award in 2011 as the best links course in Ireland. Our stay at Ardglass was brief but memorable.

Near the Ardglass shore, we had lunch at Doyles. The menu was quite impressive for such a tiny cafe. I was pleased with my hefty vegetation wrap with a side salad for around 8 pounds. I could see why Doyles was recommended by Trip Advisor. It was neat, clean, very efficient; the service and food were excellent. It wasn’t fancy but perfect for a quick bite on the run.

I loved the Ardglass Lighthouse as well. Like Doyles, it was down to earth and welcoming.

The little red door and steps nearby beaconed me for a closer look.
