A quiet day today.  Our B & B host (the same one we had on our first day in Ireland, and kindly booked by Claire) said what a breathe of fresh air we were after some of the guests they'd had recently. It would appear some have unusual expectations/requests.... Read more >

Back roads today.  Miles and miles of country lanes/roads.  Beautiful countryside and homes. A bit of money in these parts.  Our first stop was the National stud near Kildare.  The top stallion there, Invincible Spirit, earns €... Read more >

Midleton - (Carlow)

Last night's B&B was a Fawlty Towers of sorts. " Bugle" playing host, somewhere down the hall,  had us in fits of laughter later in the evening.  Janice never actually got to meet him but I did when he came to make a few ineffectual attempts ... Read more >

I spent some time last night re-organising this journal so, hopefully, it flows a bit better now?  I also changed my tablet from Aussie time to Ireland time so the dates should make sense to.  Marathoners are up early this morning, which means ... Read more >

Glenomra House is the name of the B&B we stayed in last night.  All the B&B's have been 30 EUR each per night,  but this one would have to be the winner so far. Really nice woman running it, great room (always with ensuite) and the ... Read more >

Galway - Ennis

So many photo opportunities but so few places to stop and take them!  We drove north and took in part of the Lar Connaght penninsula, and then south through The Burren area.  Narrow windy roads bordered by rock walls and overgrown hedges.  ... Read more >

Beautiful sunny day today.  Drove the back roads.Lovely country driving. Flat to rolling land very like the Waikato.  Houses generally, although older, are better kept than in NZ.  The overgrown hedges that border the paddocks make sight ... Read more >

The Flight

Tuesday, 3 Sep 2013 | Views [229] | Comments [2]

Three hours in a shuttle bus plus 22 hours flying, along with the stopovers in between, has taken it's toll on our minds and bodies.  No sleep for me and only a couple of hours for Janice but it's surprising what a nice hot shower can do.  ... Read more >
