    Today we went first to Newgrange (Bru na Boinne in Gaelic). Impressive place. It is about 500 years older than the pyramids in Egypt and 1000 years older than Stonehenge. It is the largest Neolithic passage tomb in Europe. It has been partially reconstructed, but is mostly intact original. Unfortunately, it can only be seen by guided tour. So we took a tour. I will say this: it is NOT someplace ...

    Today we left the River Shannon valley and the Midlands for Drogheda in the east.

    Our first stop was Clonmacnoise, a monastic settlement founded in 544 AD. Most of the building are of course ruins and there is a large graveyard surrounding them. There are a number of high crosses there. Today it was extremely foggy this morning. All our pictures have a surreal quality about them. The ...

It was the archeologists who rebuilt the front facade so we don't know if it's an accurate representation, but its their best guess. The big rocks at the base remain in the same place they were 5000 years ago, many of them have carvings on them. The carvings are circles, squares and triangles. The official description is geometric abstract ...

    ... of waiting until today when we had our rental car, we decided to take a day tour (and if read our Vietnam blog, you know how we love bus tours!) to see the archeological sites to the north of Dublin.

    The bus tour turned out to be quite nice, actually. First, there were only 15 cattle in the bus, including five "ancients" who were quickly left in the dust by our ...

    ... more time, I would stay in this area longer next time. We stopped at a pub back in town for a drink to wait for the next bus back to Belfast. They had just run out of the Smithwick's on tap, so I got to try a new flavor - the Smithwick's IPA, which was quite tasty too. We were back in Belfast by about 8pm. We grabbed dinner at a cool hoppin place called the Alleycat for burgers and Irish craft beers, then returned to the hotel for some much needed ...
