Isn't this a beautiful cottage! How lucky we are to be staying here.

Most unusual beehive huts are frequently seen on the far west coast of the peninsula. I just love the Irish scenery, every skerrick of Ireland seems to have been occupied and farmed at some time or other. Something we are certainly not used to.
Irish coffee and Guinness in an authentic village pub, and musicians who could play anything and make it sound like an Irish reel! A "reel" family affair, we were all made to feel so welcome. Customers sang impromptu and so well! We were so amazed.
Very exciting to go into a real castle. We were able to climb he tiny spiral stairs and explore the rooms once occupied by the Butler family a long long time ago. This is probably the best adventure so far. . a real castle where the "Tudors" was filmed.
It took a few days to set up internet connection. Due to user error. Anyway all better now. You and I will have to catch up.
Last time we spoke, we were off to the Arran Isles. What an awful day weather wise. The boat trip was so rough I thought we would be shipwrecked off the coast of Ireland like so many in history. Probably is a beautiful place, but all we saw was rain! All the colourful locals must have been hidden indoors watching tv and cosy warm! Too wet to even get the camera out.
