We had a terrific time in your wonderful country!
On our first day we stopped near Kildare to look for Tully National Stud (our son's name is Tully), but were unable find a sign saying "Tully National Stud" to take a picture beside - but did find a sign "Tully Bull Performance Test Centre" which was an adequate substitute picture.
Kilkenny was a nice start to our holiday – The Accommodation was a nice start to our B&B experience.
On our way to Killarney we stopped at Cahir Castle and Swiss Cottage.
We had a great time pubbing and eating and pubbing some more in Killarney. Once again the accommodations were very comfortable for the lot of us!
We drove to Dingle and through Tralee and on up to the ferry across the Shannon River en route to Doolin. The Cliffs were breathtaking and well worth the time. The wind was blowing a gale at the top ... glad there were fences there at this point!
Doolin was far and away our favorite place to stay... we walked all around the Burren Country - went to see Doolin Cave and the Great Stalctite of Doolin ... nice. Of course, ... The B&B was, again, excellent.
Thank you for a wonderful trip. The Irish people we encountered were all very friendly and helpful.
