Gorgeous Irish Villages and Sunny Ireland!

... we arrived in Kinsale. Now, this town has won the prize so far for the most gorgeous. And then came the rain! The B&B accommodation was gorgeous (an old presbytery). The rain however stopped us from exploring....and hence we were relegated to visiting some nearby Irish pubs and were finally given an excellent recommendation for dinner.

I got an open invite to visit someones house which is two doors over from Dan and Ionas house which I was not expecting but thought it was a good jester. I might take up the offer one time.


A coast with many stories to tell

A travel blog entry by melissaandalex on Oct 15, 2012
