    Geoffs of John Street

    June 8, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Stopped in for food and a pint. We were sent here by the bartender at Tullys Bar. The food was great, as usual, Joyce had the shepherds pie, and I had the spicy lamb burger (unfortunately the burger had feta cheese). We have yet to find bad food on this trip! The weather continues to be warm and dry, and it appears as though it will be until we leave. So much for experiencing typical Irish weather.Read more

    Tullys Bar, Waterford

    June 8, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Stopped in for a pint of local brew, Metalman. Great little bar with bathrooms cleaner and nicer than most I have come accross. The hand driers even worked! The decor was very nice and as with most pubs, it was a local hang out as well. We were given directions to Geoffs for food and also to Waterford Crystal.Read more

    Carigshane House B&B

    June 7, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We actually made a reservation this morning for this B&B, that is a first for us! Normally we have been just winging it, with fairly good results, as we never knew for sure where we would be at any given time. Since we knew we would do Jameson in the a.m. we chose this place earlier. It ended up being a very nice place and we stayed up drinking beer and whiskey on the back patio purchased from the Supervalu in Midleton. Joyce had a chance to make friends with Toby the dog (also the WiFi password if you happen to find yourself close by).Read more

    Blarney Castle

    June 7, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    We had to see the stone! The narrow passage and staircase along with the large amount of people led to some claustrophobia but we made it to the top! Another amazing castle. The stone structure is the only thing left of the castle, they did build a staircase to access the original stone staircase and added some hand rails, that was about it. The roof is gone, the floors are gone. There were a few rooms that we were able to explore that had stone floors, and the walls were amazingly thick. The passages under the castle were quite mysterious.Read more

    9 White Deer Brewery

    June 7, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    We stopped in while they were closed and they were nice enough to give us a private tour of their brewery. We tried their brew at Mills Inn and it was great, but wanted a few souvenirs if we could get them. It was a small operation in an office type building but they seem to have a nice set up going. Their auger conveyer for the grains into the mashtun was quite interesting.Read more
