    ... out in me but 19 pints, ha I'm dreaming. Instead it seemed only fitting to have a pub meal for lunch. We chose one of the original pubs which offered lunch and a pint for 6. Whilst having lunch we met another couple who were also on a Cosmos Tour - 10 day tour (excluded Ireland). They said they had a great tour guide.

As we went up, we saw several people sliding down the side of the hill on their way back down, obviously the road more traveled was not the way to go.
