I loved this hotel! I think it was my favorite place we stayed in Ireland. We were on the first floor and had a very large room with an alcove that contained bay windows, a sofa, and chair. Our room had two twin beds but they seemed larger, TV w/DVD player, desk w/Ipod radio, and large bathroom. The shower and tub were separate and the tub was very large. I could lay in it without having to bend my knees. There was also a small window and a heated towel rack. Breakfast each morning was fantastic. In addition to the cold bar (cereal, yogurt, etc) you could order off the menu. The French toast was ok but I really enjoyed the pancakes which were more like crepes. The toast was also very good. We took out the free bikes the one day. They were not the best, but were sufficient for our needs. Also we used the Nadur Spa. We took advantage of their October special which included a 30 minute facial, 60 minute massage, and lunch. Very nice. The staff were also great! The spa day the weather was great and we asked if we could have lunch outside to enjoy the sunshine and they were very willing to accommodate us. There were also fitness facilities that looked good but I never made it there.

Well it is about half way through our Ireland adventure and today is our rest day. I don't think we could have picked a better spot for it. I love our hotel. After breakfast (today I stuck with just toast and the cold bar) and dropping off laundry, we decide to take out bikes and ride to the Ballyseedy woods which is just down the road from the …
So today is the day we finally get to see Fungie. Or at least I hope to see Fungie. Who is Fungie you say? Fungie is the Dingle Dolphin. He's a lone dolphin who prefers to hang out with the boats coming in and out of the harbor than with other dolphins. He’s been around since 1984. When I first read about him in the travel book, I wanted to …
Well the drive from Eddie Rockets to Tralee was mostly uneventful. I wish I could have seen it in the daylight. When we get into County Kerry, there were these signs for Radio Kerry that say "the Voice of the Kingdom". Kingdom? My county is a Kingdom?
So like I said, the drive was mostly uneventful until we got to Tralee. Then my inherent …
8:30am start Thatch roof houses in Adare and a pretty park. Another perk of a coach tour is that you get off of the motorways and onto the rural roads to see the housing, gorgeous landscapes, castle and church ruins, and lakes and ocean views that you would never see up close when taking trains or other public transportation. Plus when there is a view that you just need to get a photo of, they drop you off right ...
... life?....who knew! Then this one girl started singing an old Irish song and the bar went silent. She was really good, but I've never seen a bar go completely silent and everyone listen because the song meant so much to them. We then bar hopped with a couple of the guys. They were lots of fun to hang out with even though they could have been my dad. We did get some funny looks from the bars we walked into because we were much ...
