2017 Ireland

Basically our route made a smile through Ireland. In Dublin we used the hop on-hop off bus, in Glendalough we visited St. Kevin's sanctuary, saw the prehistoric Drombeg Circle and Browneshill Dolmen, walked the Medieval Mile in Kilkenny and visited the seaside at Kinsale and Cobh, the art museum in Cork, thatched cottages in Adare, a castle/midieval village in Bunratty, the abbey in Ennis and Jerpoint and Graigenamanagh. In New Ross the Tapestry Display and the Crystal Factory in Waterford were viewed as well as the old Clock Tower in Youghal. We drove two scenic loops: the Dingle and The Great Atlantic Way via the Burren where a chocolate maker and perfumery caused a pause as well as the Cliffs of Moher. It was a marvelous 10 day trip through the ages and beauty of the Emerald Isle.
