    Cliffs of Moher

    September 14, 2017 in Ireland

    Some more pics of the Cliffs and a few of the drive to Galway. All of the rock walls are so neat. They are everywhere. And the maintenance of everything. People are always cleaning and really taking care of the whole island. The towns are adorable and so full of character.

    Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

    September 13, 2017 in Ireland

    6:30 P.M. And here we are again. We did leave but are here again for a Traditional Irish Evening. Where we will eat and watch dancing. . .we think. We are walking around the park and noticed we missed the piggery! We couldn't not see the piggies! 🐷🐽So Cute! And random goat. Did I mention that the evening tasked pave in the corn barn?! 🌽

    Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

    September 13, 2017 in Ireland

    The O'Hurleys storming the castle! T trying to climb the wall! And then slipped on the wet grass right after I took the picture. So in the dungeon he goes! If you lived here you wouldn't need any exercise equipment. The stairs are crazy in this place. Narrow and steep. They put in hand rails but we were trying to imagine no rails and the guards in their armor! Craziness! And Roxy, I want this table for family dinner! 😄Read more

    Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

    September 13, 2017 in Ireland

    What we were watching in the Corn Barn. Plus what Adrienne will eat under peer presure! We had to sit with other people. It was very uncomfortable. The only thing questionable was the salad but I lived! 😄 I had Salmon and T had Lamb Stew 🐑🙁😢

    Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

    September 13, 2017 in Ireland

    We have been here all day! I thought the castle was pretty small and wouldn't take long to look at but the folk park is a village! So walking through the whole thing, going through all the farm houses, visiting with the animals, and look at all the flowers, well, puts us at ALL DAY! 😄 Plus the heavy spiratic showers of rain in which we had to look for cover because we haven't caught on to the spiratic rainfall by day 3 and left the umbrellas in the car! 😂🌂Read more

    Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

    September 13, 2017 in Ireland

    Just a few more pics...I love all the animals and flowers. We took a break and I had a hot chocolate and Terrance has a hot toddy. With all of the vitamin c, T has been taking leading up to this trip (and getting on me for not taking mine), he's a little sick (I'm not😋). A hot toddy is whiskey, hot water, lemon, and cloves. It tasted like hot cough syrup!😫 Terrance thinks we should just take pics of my face every time I try a new drink!😅 I found my chunky sweater! Even after I bought it I couldn't decide if it was really the one I wanted😧 I don't think the sales lady was too happy with me but I didn't originally want a zipper. Well, it's mine now! And I do like it, I just have my issues 🙃 Oh! And Terrance finally found the origin of the Hurley name!Read more

    Cliffs of Moher

    September 14, 2017 in Ireland

    Exciting day at the Cliffs of Moher! Just absolutely beautiful! I took 145 pictures of the Cliffs and the drive to Galway. These pics are on the way to the Cliffs and at the Cliffs. See anything of particular interest? The hotel was on the way to the Cliffs but I don't know exactly the town name. The houses are so adorable and the drive is so pretty. Here, of, course, are just a few. . .

    Cliffs of Moher

    September 10, 2016 in Ireland

    No words needed, enjoy these amazing pictures of the Cliffs of Moher! These pictures don't do justice to seeing the Cliffs in person. With perfect weather and no rain we got to spend an afternoon at Ireland's second most visited site after of course the Guinness factory.

    Galway to Kenmare

    October 2 in Ireland

    Just loving Ireland and today another of many contrasts. Set off from Galway for the Cliffs of Moher. The hour and a half drive was gorgeous, yet the countryside so rugged and farms so underdeveloped due to the land being so poor. The cliffs were another tourist site which was very well managed and we were lucky that they were not so busy although by the time we left we counted 15 tourist buses. The sun came out and the scenery was amazing although was very nervous about how stable the ground under our feet was. We drove on to a very old fashioned town full of pubs where we actually found a reasonably modern cafe for lunch. Our next stop was Adare, a beautiful tourist town with lovely shops and some thatched roof cottages. The scenery by now had completely changed and the whole area of Kerry seemed very prosperous compared to County Clare. We drove through Killarney but realised we would now be doing the most picturesque part of the Ring of Kerry as we made our way to Kenmare. Not wanting to get there too late and knowing we wanted to explore the area more tomorrow, we decided not to make any more stops and just carry on. The scenery was breathtaking and we arrived an hour later in Kenmare at 5 30 to find the loveliest little Irish town. Our accomodation was O’Donnabhain’s Hotel and our room was above the main bar. We wandered around the streets before settling into the bar for a lovely pub meal and live music. All gorgeous. After another walk around we retired upstairs and were surprised at how sound proof the room was- but how hard the bed was! Oh well can’t have everything!Read more

    To Gort

    September 30 in Ireland

    According to google maps it should take just over 2 hours to travel from Killarney to Gort but there’s no fun in taking the direct route. I headed first to Dingle, finding a lovely beach at Inch Strand - very sandy and golden. Despite the cold cloudy day there were quite a few surfers out.
    I then took the Conor Pass over to Castlegregory. Like all of the mountain passes I have taken the scenery was beautiful. The road was quite narrow in places and I had to back up quite a bit in one spot.
    Up to Talbert and then I took the car ferry crossing from County Kerry into County Clare. I went up the coast to Lahinch and then across to Gort which is where I’m staying tonight. Basically I couldn’t decide between Ennis and Galway and Gort is halfway between. The hotel I’m in seems to be a hotel for business travellers as tonight is cheaper than the. Ext two.
