          Ballynahinch Castle is a great place to stay if you have time to enjoy the surroundings which we didn't because of our schedule and the presence of midges in May. Other inconveniences are the lack of an elevator and being located so far from anything else. I would love to go back in the summer and hike in this area. If you are looking for peace and quiet and nature, this is the place for you. The rooms are elegantly appointed and the bed was divine. We found the food amazing but the service was slow for dinner. Three hours for one meal was too much. The breakfast was partially a cold breakfast bar and ordering from a menu. These meals were served in a timely fashion.

          We had breakfast shortly before 9:00. They had a cold buffet which included all of the usual foods plus a whole ham from which to cut slices. Once seated at the table we could order from the hot menu. I ordered Eggs Benedict as did Derek. Larry got pancakes. I also had a scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam. I also had a small chocolate …

          Our alarm was not set properly and we woke up 7 minutes before bags were to be out in the hall at 7:15. Somehow we got them out just as they were coming to get them. Thank God I had packed most everything the night before. Derek showed up 7 minutes later for breakfast so he would have gotten us up late. So I am glad I woke up when I did. We had the …

Don't worry, I will be writing another nostalgic post about Ireland on Friday night, but for now lets talk about how amazing my weekend was! I finished my Anatomy and Physiology final exam on Thursday which was a HUGE relief and weight lifted ...
