    On to the next castle

    September 16, 2018 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    After a night of listening to our neighbors talk (I guess insulation was not invented when this castle was built), We woke to a lovely sky of clouds but with blue behind them. As our plan for this day is just to get from here to there, I commented that today was just going to be a leisurely pace, to which Bruce asked if I could handle that 😊 Drove (my goodness, some of these roads are narrow!) two hours to our next hotel, Kilronan Estate. This one is a much better hotel, very luxurious.
    We took their castle loop walk around the lake, enjoying the outdoors. It's 7:30p, so we are going down for dinner. Hopefully also catch up on sleep...

    Very nice. Great bedroom and grounds. Were those sheep in the pasture?

    Yes, cute little white ones and a couple of black.

    In search of Curley Island

    May 30, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    We headed south in search of ancestral clues. Finding proof of the Curley name in Ireland was the best that we could really expect. We were trying to find Cloonark, without much sucess, but it was on the map, just no signs anywhere proving is location. On a whim, we decide to stop at the Garda station on the side of the road and they turned out to be really helpful tour guides! We were in Cloonark, which apparently, according to the Garda, even some of the people that live there don't know where it is. So with a Garda escort they took us to the first clue and we met some more Curleys. Then off to Drum and we met an overly helpful cemetary historian/currator/guide and found some actual Curley headstones. Then we were in search of Moore cemetary (didn't find it) and Curley Island (didn't find it either). We stopped at Shannon bridge had a pint and a bite to eat at Kileen pub. Off to Clonmacnoise and a stop at the Monastary ruins. Many people had heard of Curley Island but no one knew what or where it was other than likely a land mass in the River Shannon near Shannon Bridge.Read more

    Try and ERROR

    June 17, 2018 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Heute habe ich mal den worst case erleben dürfen. Auf und ab auf Scheißstraßen mit größtenteils Laufen bei Gegenwind und Regen. Dieses Land versaut mir den Spaß am Boarden. Anbei ein Castle welches ich unterwegs passiert habe.Read more

    Famine museum

    August 20, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Je ziet en leest veel over de Famine tijd. Onderweg zien we een bord naar een Famine museum en besluiten dit te bezoeken. Het is een zeer onduidelijk museum, de uitleg die we kregen paste niet men de indeling van het museum en ze sprongen echt van de het ene punt naar het andere zonder duidelijke connectie. Meer vrager erna dan ervoor maar als we buiten komen is het eindelijk gestopt met regenen. (16:49u) 😂 Onvriendelijk waren ze ook nog want eens buiten mocht Peggy niet terug binnen om de wc te gebruiken. (10 min. voor sluitingstijd)Read more


    Je hebt er toch geen honger aan overgehouden?

    Boyle abby

    August 20, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Onderweg stoppen we in Boyle aan de abdij. Ze ligt op het kruispunt aan een grote weg en je kan de buitenkant en een groot deel van de binnenkant reeds van op straat zien. Het is een prachtig gebouw met glazen dak en gevel in verwerkt. Vermits een groot deel toch buiten is en het regent en de inkom te te duur is besluiten we om niet binnen te gaan.De grijze luchter werken op ons humeur!Read more
