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.

We finally pulled into Tralee this evening and our hotel - needless to say, we were all quite glad to arrive, get showered, and have dinner. When I announced at the start of dinner that for the entire trip we would all be putting our phones in a bag I was so ...

... bus back then had a nice hot cuppa and got the heater going in the car to dry out, it wasn’t really cold, it was just that they were wet.
Then we drove on down to Kinsale: This is another old port and a well preserved old town with very narrow streets not designed for the motor car and two way traffic especially with the Irish way of parking on double yellow lines, makes driving a real challenge: Apart from the charm of the town itself ...
... a great lunch with the class at the Dingle Bay Hotel.
At dinner we were joined by Dr Petillo, Dean Carey, Asst dean Jerry Reed and the owner of the Dingle Aquarium at the Boatyard Restaurant. We took a full group shot outside after dinner. Stopped off at John Benny's on the way home.
... as seen from Ladies View. The name apparently stems from the admiration of the view given by Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting during their 1861 visit. It's such a pity it is so grey, it really is not bringing out the colours in the lake and the mountains. We take the drive back via Killarney as it I still a bit early to avoid the jaunting carts in the Gap,of Dunloe. We have dinner tonight at the Beaufort Inn, in front of the warm cosy fire. Come on Ireland you need to warm up a ...
