Writing yesterday’s Saint Patrick’s Day post brought back fond memories of my 2009 trip to Ireland. Though to be truthful the actual experience was somewhat stressful since we did not book a tour. Rather we made our own reservations, rented cars and drove ourselves around. So there was a fair amount of feeling a little “lost”. At least they spoke English – sort of. Going back through my pictures, I thought I would share a few more with you. Again, you can click on the image to see a larger version. If you’d like any more info, ask in the comments and I’ll answer.
Lismore Castle in County Waterford, once owned by Sir Walter Raleigh. The site has been occupied since the 7th Century, but the current buildings were built in the mid-18th century. We did not go inside as the grounds were closed at the time we were passing through the area.
Here is a main street of a typical Irish town. I believe the pink building on the left is a pub. There is always a pub.
Yep..I was right. It’s Danny O’Shea’s. No google listing. There is a D. O’Shea’s Hotel on google but this isn’t it.
OK, that’s all for now. If you want to see more or know any more about the subject, please inquire in the comments.
