Day 30

A travel blog entry by bigadventure14


Up early this morning. Too early for our English breakfast. Drove to the ferry port at Holyhead. Loaded the car on and went into the lounge to enjoy the 3.5 hour trip.

Then we took the Kilkenny road train tour to get our bearings. Followed up with a walk around town. Found an Irish pub we had read about and went in for a ...

Dublin to Kilkenny

A travel blog entry by deniseandted


... home for the night, the river Barrow flowing full right alongside, and narrow barges and boats tied up on both sides. Delightful old village, we set off for a walk along the river and back around the town before a recommended drive to nearby Borris for dinner, there being only takeaways available locally and not our cuppa. A few locals were walking too, as the rain had stopped and it was very pleasant. As you do, we got chatting and walking with a delightful ...
