Basic room at reasonable rate right in the heart of old downtown. The room was well lite, clean, and just what most people on a budget look for. Coming from drought stricken California I had to laugh at the toilets which seems to use about 12 gallon for every flush! Great breakfast! We had the Irish breakfast with Waterford bacon, Roscrea sausage, egg, grilled tomato, mushrooms, and black pudding, set in great room with deer heads and hunting pictures. The building is over 200 hundred years old and it was quite a long walk back to our room up and down stairs through various doors, it was almost comical (woman's view - I found it charming). We have thank Rick Steves for the recommendation.

My first stop is Powerscourt House, about 25ks south of Dublin. Its nice but the entrance fee is way to dear for me, so i just explore the surrounding gardens.
Next stop is Sally Gap in the Wicklow mountains. Some very nice scenery along the way. What i am having trouble with is the very narrow lanes, not roads, lanes. They are about 1.5 cars wide, so meeting oncoming ...

After finding our B&B (again no address just a name!) we headed out to dinner at Jack Meade Pub. I had sea bass, fresh, and it was great. Our waitress told us the tale - the downstairs had always been a pub but the upstairs where we were dining, used to be a "wake" (mortuary) room. People are just so nice here.
Our B&B was delightful and best of all....we had three single beds! No sharing tonight!
... this one and we decide that if this bus is full, we will wait for that one but if that is full we would get a taxi. Thankfully, the bus stops and we all somehow squeeze on. We have to stand for the drive to the airport, but that is ok. So my advice if you are going to take the AirLink is to maybe find a stop that is not the last one before the airport, or try not to go on a day where lots of people are heading there. ...
