I have attached a few pictures of our recent trip to Ireland. Billy & I had a wonderful time on our 658 road miles trip across Ireland!
Billy was an excellent driver and I was an excellent ( read horrid ) back seat driver sitting in the passenger seat! "Go Mall"- became my cry!The driving part was stressful but it was a terrific adventure that we really did enjoy.
We saw so many sights we had to get home to remember it all. Bill's favorite was the Cliff's of Moher and my favorite places were Kinsale in County Cork and the small village of Ardmore in County Waterford.
We had much seafood and many fabulous beers. Someone introduced us to Bulmer's Irish Cider and the Guinness guy and the Murphy's gal agreed and it became another favorite for both of us.
The weather was extremely nice with very little rain. Our last day in Dublin was the only day where we had a rain that lasted all day. We bought two umbrellas and trekked the streets of Dublin for several hours before giving in to a taxi ride back to our hotel!
The accommodations that you booked for us met our expectations and the breakfasts were always nice.
Thank You so much for all the work you did to help us on this exciting journey.
Go raibh maith agat,
