      Ardmore cliff

      May 21 in Ireland ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

      After a peaceful ferry ride from Cherbourg, we finally set foot on the lush, green lands of Ireland. The fresh, balmy air was a refreshing welcome as we disembarked in Rosslare and made our way to our first stop in the Waterford area.

      We settled into a quaint cottage, a perfect blend of rustic charm and comfort, setting the tone for what I hope will be a rejuvenating stay. Keen to stretch our legs after the journey, we decided to explore the Ardmore Cliff Walk. This scenic trail, known for its breathtaking views of the Atlantic, was an ideal introduction to the natural beauty of Ireland.

      The walk was a delightful mix of sunshine and brief showers—a typical Irish weather palette—that painted the cliffs and waves in vibrant hues. The trail, taking about an hour, was just right for us and the dogs, with plenty of interesting smells and sights to keep Awen and Nessy busy and thrilled. The ocean, vast and endless, roared beside us as we trekked the well-trodden path, each turn offering a new vista more stunning than the last.

      Returning to our cottage, we took the evening to relax and truly settle into the Irish pace of life. A glass of fine Irish whiskey was the perfect end to our day, warming us as we lounged by the fireplace, recounting our adventures and planning the days to come.

    • Day 12

      Kinsale and Ardmore

      June 13, 2022 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

      After the weekend, we ventured over to explore Kinsale, a small coastal town, maybe 1 1/2 hr drive from Dungarvan. As with all drives, the last 10-20 km is nail biting. Oh well, getting used to the idea. Traveling on weekdays helps though. Certainly less traffic coming toward us! Kinsale is another coastal town, very similar to Annapolis in MD. Narrow, cobble streets, and shops everywhere. Unfortunately, the restaurant we wanted to have lunch at was closed on Monday. So sad, great location and have heard the food is amazing. Second choice was the Cliff House in Ardmore - another beach town. We did not hike the cliffs today but lunch on the patio over looking the cliffs and the water was a nice choice. Driving back down the cliffs? Yeah- can’t describe. Thank goodness it wasn’t the weekend!
      Every good trip that lasts this long requires some chores. Today was laundry day. We’ve been washing some things out by hand but it was time. By the way, Underarmour shirts wash up nice in sink and dry overnight. Got the big washer, so we put everything in together. Oh, laundromat is in the parking lot of the gas station. Yeah. Out in public for anyone driving by…….
      Off to the Beara peninsula to town of Goleen tomorrow. Staying at Herons Cove, our first B and B. Address? The Harbor!
