        Castle was built in 1832 ... Quaint little town in easy walking distance ... Walking trails also are interesting .

        Great place to stay. Very accommodating with truly friendly staff. Food was great. No Internet in the rooms but hey, this is a Castle. Scenic views outside.

        A beautiful hotel that looks like sleeping beauty's castle. Restored early 19th century castle...later orphanage...later hotel. Pricing includes dinner and breakfast. Get a room with a front view. A little 'rough around the edges' but worth the stay.

        We stayed in a castle!!!

        Prior to pulling into the castle we drove the Sky Road. It makes Irelands "most picturesque drives" list all the time. Just beautiful!!

        Picture provided by the Castle. Of course, everyone agreed Tracy needed to be The King (old guy!)

        We did not get to Abbyglen Castle until 6:00 pm and we needed …

        Today we decided to make a more relaxing day and just enjoy the local area. After a late breakfast, we hiked about 2 km up from our castle-hotel to the ruins of an older castle. This castle was vacated in the 1890s and not preserved since then, so it was really just standing walls/rooms and that was about it ... But still very interesting to see …

        Today was another adventure -- breakfast at the B&B with the entertaining and very talkative proprietress of the house. We left Ennis around 9:30 and drove to the Cliffs of Moher, an absolutely beautiful place that pictures can't really capture. The shops and visitor center are built into a cliff. We walked around the cliffs and the remains of …

        Given last night's foul weather, we planned a drive up into Connemara with possible indoor locations should the weather remain as it was. The morning looked rain-free but around here that isn't worth much. This was also a route planned via geocaches as we had network problems dredging up other online material the previous evening. The little beach village of Spiedal was the first port of call. The cache was easy enough to find but extracting the paper log and not letting it blow away in ...

        ... of old village women doing it...I thought I could handle it. After reading blogs of people who had done it or tried (and couldn't due to rain or fog), I decided I would settle for walking up to the statue of St. Patrick. John had also told me that we would probably be very sore for the rest of the trip if we tried it. The signs say it takes 2 hours to hike up and 1 1/2 hours to hike down. The hike isn't on green grass, but rather rocky road. The hikers we ...
