Lazy, Rainy Sunday in Limerick

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

This morning dawned gray and damp, which means it was later than normal before the birds began chirping outside our window. In fact it was nearly 4 A.M. before the serenade began! I guess they stayed in the pub too late or something, and just […]

Running Rings in County Kerry

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

We got an early start today, as our plan would take us on the longest drive of the tour. We were heading down to County Kerry, to “run the ring” with all the tour buses and tourists. (We’re not tourists, you see; I got that […]

Seeking Fish & Chips and Whisky: Touring the South of County Cork

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

John was waiting a bit early this morning, or else we were maybe a few minutes late getting our stuff together for the days touring. We had a five-minute delay while we stopped for batteries for my camera. Today’s agenda: The south of County Cork, […]

Mountain Passes and Racing Sheep: The Dingle Peninsula

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

Rest and Recovery in Misty Adare, and a Visit to Lough Gur

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

The past five days had been Very Hectic, so we decided to take the morning off from touring and relax a bit. We slept in, ate a late, sedate breakfast, then went for a stroll.

I had been up since the chirping birds began serenading us […]

The Long, Lovely Drive Across Southern Ireland

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

Father’s Day began early enough, with cleaning up, packing and preparing to travel again. I was extra-excited as today we would see Kilkenny, Cashel and finish in Adare, my all-time favorite Irish hamlet. (I wonder why they call it a hamlet? Not big enough to […]

The Road Through Wicklow to Waterford

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

The road tour portion of the Great Irish Photo Safari and Pub Grub Rummage began this morning. John Carey, a professional limousine driver, tour guide and personal friend, met us at 0900 sharp with his Mercedes Benz all spiffed up and ready to go. We […]
