Stephanie - we had a FABULOUS time. I guess we brought our sunny Colorado weather to Ireland, because during our stay we had exceptional weather. Our favorite place was the Castle. We were so pleasantly surprised by the fact that it was situated on an island, and we were offered a private car ferry ride. Our room was a three-room suite, decorated in Victorian style with all the old world charm and splendor. The staff there were just ultra efficient! We kept calling it our 'fantasy island'.
Our next favorite was the Country House in Killarney. The owners were so warm, friendly, inviting, gracious and really made us feel at home. The view was stunning and the manor was very quiet and peaceful.
I guess our least favorite was Dublin, but again, it was raining the day we arrived. We had trouble finding the car rental return at the Dublin Airport, and we drove around in circles for 30 minutes before finally calling the rental agency. Someone there said they had just changed the entrance to it, so we didn't feel so bad after learning that.
Speaking of car rental, I am SO glad you reserved a GPS unit for us. We would have been completely lost without it. Although you provided the great ordinance map with the large roads, all the smaller roads would have been a navigational nightmare. And just as luck would have it, they gave me a five-speed manual shift car. What a challenge! We finally just started laughing about my driving errors and had fun. I did take out the full insurance on the car because I didn't want to be responsible for any damage.
Most of our pictures are of the countryside and there are very few of us. If you want background pictures, then I'll be glad to share a few. Oh, the dinner/show at Abbey Tavern was outstanding.
Thanks for helping us build such fond memories and sharing your charming country with us. Best, Val
