      ... setting it is in the Wicklow Mountains! The ruins, the mountains, streams and lakes make the place very peaceful, which explains why St. Kevin chose this spot to settle. We spent some time touring the ruins, seeing the grave stones, and just enjoying being in such a beautiful place. This site was a bit of a challenge for the wheelchair, but we made it work and, as always, Dad was up for the challenge!

      Next, we had a bit of a drive to get ...

      ... we googled where this was & stopped in for a photo on the way.

      Also on the way to Cork was the Jameson Wiskey Distillery. We stopped in there for the tour, which of course included a tasting at the end. Again I'm not sure if Dane enjoyed his Wiskey or my face after trying his Wiskey (I got orange juice instead) more.

      ... It was 10:45am... We walked around the building, into the parking lot, and walked basically in circles for a few minutes. Finally, we realized that there was a sign with arrows, pointing towards the actual station. We had to wak THROUGH the parking lot and around a different building where we found stairs leading us to the other side of the tracks...oops! By this time, we missed our train (they had just called the final boarding call as we walked in the door). Oh well! We got ...
