Friday Lahinch Aquarium and Pool by Ann Treacy

The aquarium and pool are under one roof – though we didn’t get to actually swim with the fishes. The aquarium was pretty cool. My favorites were the camouflage fish- I have a video of them.

The ugliest fish was the baby conger eel. The fact that they are hanging out in the North Atlantic is enough to keep me out of the deep. We also saw some baby lobsters. They were tiny – about the size of a quarter – and they are slow to slow. At about two and a half years, they were still small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The staff members were feeding them with a tweezers. Lobsters live to be about 50 or 60.

We were there during the feeding and that was fun to see too. We were the only ones there for the feeding but the guy feeding the fish gave us a nice explanation about the fish and what they eat. Apparently they only eat twice a week.

After the aquarium tour we went into the swimming pool.

Friday night we had a nice dinner at the Liscannor Hotel – which is halfway between our place and the Cliffs of Moher. Grandma and Grandpa are staying at the hotel in about a week when they come back to go golfing.
