  • Day7

    Alll day, with no respite. Made touring very difficult, and most disappointing for the much anticipated Rock of Cashel, which is such an impressive site, but, alas, the rain kept us from the full experience. We took the 45-minute tour and were so miserable, we opted not to explore any further. We also skipped our planned Cahir Castle tour, but did tour the Swiss Cottage which the owners of Cahir Castle had built to enjoy simpler life (think Marie Antoinette's hamlet at Versailles).
    The Irish "tink" (not think), and it "tunders" (not thunders), and things are "lovely," and they want to know how "ye" are; they are warm and hospitable.
    Ireland has been good. (But, I "tink" me heart still remains firmly in Tuscany and France.)
    Blessed more than I deserve and am glad I've seen Ireland (and we conquered the driving!)
    NYC, here we come!!!
    (The fourth picture is taken from entering Cashel, and seeing the Rock of Cashel in the distance over the town, but I'm afraid the rain hinders being able to see it, and certainly to appreciate it!)

    Foynes Flying Boat Museum

    October 10 in Ireland

    Killorglin was a nice place to visit, and the hospitality at Rivers Edge Guest House was great. However, it was time to move on.
    Whilst in Limerick a few days ago we came across information about the Foynes Flying Boat Museum. We couldn’t get there at the time but we thought it a good pace to visit when next nearby. And so was the case.
    There were 6 years of flying bot service in and out of Foynes, 1939-1945, and then it was over. The Boeing 314s were, I suppose, at the end of the evolutionary tree, and by 1946 land based planes had taken over.
    The thought of flying from America to Ireland and having both sleeping quarters AND a 14-seat dining room, whilst in the air, must have seemed almost improbable at the time. Nevertheless, that was what was promised, and provided. Naturally, it was limited to those with serious money, such as politicians, high ranking armed forces personnel, and film stars such as Maureen O’Hara.
    From there we headed off to do a bit more of the Atlantic Way. We travelled on the ferry from Tarbert Port and then drove on the Atlantic Way as far as Spanish Point before we ran out of time and headed to our bed for the night, in the Rowan Tree Hostel in Ennis.
    This is our first night in a youth hostel, and first impressions were very good. We walked up to the local supermarket, bought some provisions and had a relaxing dinner. Robyn had a bad experience with Scrabble and gave up early on!

    Adare, Ireland

    April 26 in Ireland

    In de namiddag bezochten we Adare, een klein historisch dorpje met een aantal traditionele huisjes en een indrukwekkend kasteel. We kregen ook uitle over de geschiedenis van het stadje door Lady Dungraven, een grappige dame die veel wist over haar familiegeschiedenis.

    Foynes

    October 14, 2015 in Ireland

    Nach einem ausgedehnten Frühstück und einer nicht zu erholsamen Nacht (blöde, superweiche Matratze), sind wir ab hier wieder auf dem Wild Atlantic Way - der weltweit längsten öffiziellen Küstenstraße (2.500km) - unterwegs. Hier gibt's das Flying Boats Museum, aber viel interessanter, den ersten Cache des Tages ;). Und, hier wurde der Irish Coffe für die ankommenden, frierenden Reisenden erfunden.

    Limerick

    July 26, 2014 in Ireland

    Das was wir gesehen haben hat uns gar nicht gefallen. Also sind wir in irgendeinen Bus gestiegen, der an den Rand der Stadt fährt. An der Uni sind wir dann ausgestiegen, noch ein bisschen gelaufen bis wir an einem Fluss standen. Schnell war klar, dass wir hier die nächste Nacht bleiben wollen. Wir suchten einen versteckten Platz für unser Zelt (und fanden den perfekten Stock!!) und setzen uns nach dem Aufbauen ans Wasser um zu Abend zu essen. Die Nacht schliefen wir beide richtig gut und auch so gefiel uns dieses Fleckchen, also beschlossen wir einfach noch eine Nacht hier zu bleiben. Tagsüber liefen wir ein bisschen am Fluss entlang und Sonja schlief einfach die ganze Zeit. Urlaub eben ;)Read more
