    clean and comfortable, good staff.
    No TV in the rooms and the front road is very noisy due to it being a cobblestone road.
    don't stay here if you are driving, there no parking without have to feed a parking meter every 4 hours.

    ... want to say anything in front of others and she finds out later on. Hmmmm, ok then?? She told us a few stories about people; one twelve year old boy who apparently was petrified and came out with scratches down his chest. She yelled out in the dark a few times, resulting in a lot of screams but it wasn't working on us. Until David insisted that something had brushed past his hand - ok I started feeling a bit weird.

    ... this is an experience I'd want to repeat. On our walk home we walked past some pubs and heard live music - it is noticeably different compared to Dublin. I think we are all starting to get a sense how vastly different these places can be even though they are located in a relatively small area in the North Atlantic Ocean and sometimes we can generalize about the people and places of the British Isles.

    We then had about four hours until our next ticketed show. So we headed down to one of the many free fringe venues Laughing Horse @ Espionage. It's not free exactly, you are expected to pay on your way out. There were five acts and an MC. Some were good, some not so good. Do I remember their names or think it was worth remembering their names? No. ***

    ... the area. The first part of the drive took us through snow covered mountains from the night before. After leaving the motorway and getting onto an “A” route, we then went through winding roads between homes, more forest and plenty of hills covered in livestock. We even passed a spot that made us think we went back to Wisconsin (a John Deer dealership next to the first silo we had seen wince we had been there and a field, it was ...
