Full Irish breakfast all 'round although none of us ate it all.
We walked around Cahir Castle and took a bunch of photos, then did some preliminary souvenir shopping across the street from the castle.
The Vee Drive between Cahir and Lismore is spectacular and we took even more photos. The rhododendrons were in bloom and the …
After full Irish breakfast or delicious French toast, we were collected by our guide for the day, our good friend from previous trips, Anchoress. Wonder of wonders, it came to pass that she is a good friend of our hostess Dympna's sister so they had a nice chat.
All the way down to Sheep's Head. The 'girls' went for a walk while Anchoress …
One of us had her usual Full Irish Breakfast, one bravely opted for porridge (which she found to be suspiciously like oatmeal) and one even tried salmon with her scrambled eggs. One French toast.
Motored into Bantry, this being a Friday the market on the Quay was in full sway. We checked out Anchoress' stall and some others, and after a …
Last weekend we ventured to Killarney for a day trip. I can honestly say, when I envisioned Ireland, this was what I was picturing.

TravelPod Member ReviewsDromcloc House Bantry
We enjoyed tremendously our stay at Dromcloc House in Bantry. While it isn't the most modern or upscale, it has the feel of a well-loved home and the people treated us just like family; Dympna and Johnny, our hosts, and their daughter and grandson who were helping out with breakfasts.
One of our rooms was at the end of the house and had tremendous views of Bantry Bay both from the bedroom and the en suite. Our first evening we took a stroll down to the Bay.
Dromcloc House is on a working dairy farm but just a short drive from the town of Bantry. Signposted on the way is a Mass Rock and Holy Well which are worth exploring if you like that sort of thing.
We are already considering a stay there on our next trip to Ireland.
