Backroads of Country Cork

A travel blog entry by efrohoff


We all sleep in, having gotten in late last night from Dublin. Chris leaves for work at half past 8. What should we do today? We take a look at this book Chris and I have, Backroads of Ireland, and one of the drives is in East County Cork. We decide to take it and that will allow us to see the countryside as well as some of the cute villages along the way. There is also a very good ancient stone circle sight along the drive. We take the drive backwards, beginning in ...
