    Our breakfast served by Betty was very nice including home-cooked scones, pancakes, porridge and smoked salmon. It rained a bit as we left the B&B but it soon cleared up leaving good driving conditions for the drive to Blarney Castle.
    The kids were unsure about seeing another castle and kissing the Blarney Stone but by the end of the experience declared that this was the best castle visit yet. The actual castle is mostly a ruin inside but the walls and spiral ...

    Travelled the last 180 km, to Wexford, mostly in pouring rain and fog, stopping at Dungarvan for coffee - looked like an interesting harbour town - and at New Ross for lunch. Camped at the city site, on a hill overlooking the sea we have to cross tomorrow to Wales, still in pouring rain and wind. Rain and wind howled part of the night, buffeting the Boomer. Ireland has been great - family to see and so many memories as ...

Hook the long peninsula with the lighthouse and Crook a little village on the other ...

    ... to see how the servant lived. It seems to L that those in Florence court had better conditions, although both were damp and musty because there are no fires burning and the big kitchen ranges stand idle and cold. That alone would have produced some heat and a drying influence on the atmosphere. The Castle Coole basement was completely underground with the servants’ entrance to it from a long tunnel that was equally damp and cold. The Florence castle basement ...

    ... into the town as it isn't busy. I see Aherne's Restaurant. We are having another of Friedrike's little "flourishes" which is Bailey's or Murphy's stout and cheese straws. This is her Irish "flourish". The last one was at Blair Castle when we all had whisky. We have an English one to look forward to. Most of the coastal towns are walled towns or cities and as we leave Youghal we pass through the city gates which is an archway under the clock tower. Youghal is on the Blackwater River. ...
