What can I say, a wonderful room, comfy bed, great view, the honeymoon room no less, and we have been married 38 years. Very friendly hostess. Also great weather, sunny and warm, everything is good. And then in the morning, the breakfast was wonderful and so well done.

We heard from Joan (Oliver's cousin) tonight and have been invited for lunch in Castleisland ...

Second shop much more conventional, for the record, bread and fillings got and eaten. I nearly are the second scone anyway, mind. So, to Tralee. The phone knew where the bus stop was and I pulled in. Could I see a familiar face? I could not. Did I dare leave the car and wander? It was a pay car park, but ought to be alright. ...
Driving in Ireland is a unique experience. Those who have travelled here will know what I am talking about.
First, the roads are very good, no potholes and the smooth bitumen covers right to the edge. The signposts are clear, even though they are in both English and Irish. The real trick is driving fast, 80-100 kph on roads that are 2 cars wide with a gap of around 1 metre. At first you think it is ...
