Today was the day to see Blarney Castle and the blarney stone and we were one of the first through the gates. What am amazing castle and we headed up the steps to the stone ..... but no .... we didn't go much further than half way. All of a sudden you get a sense of 'what if there is an earthquake' and this castle was built in the 13th century. …
... with solid colour. The farms were neatly maintained with row after row of rock fences. At this time of year the farmers are busy with their harvests, so there was no end in sight of bales and rolls of feed.
Ireland is certainly green – the locals always joke of their weather: Summer it rains, Spring it rains, Autumn it rains, but in Winter, it snows. We were very lucky, and even with the remnants of ex-typhoon Bertha crossing ...
... luggage can't take any others.
I am now back at the hostel after grabbing some snacks for dinner since I was still full from lunch. I've showered and I'm just hanging out. It seems only the guys stay in this room since I've only seen 2 French girls twice but the boys are here all the time. I've showered and now I'm just going to chill. I'm getting up early again tomorrow to go to Cork and Blarney Castle!
Until tomorrow! Miss you all!
Overall we have loved Ireland and could easily have spent more time here. The only place we visited which held no appeal whatsoever was Limerick. Everywhere else was worthy of more time. The roads are exceptionally good, the people friendly, the food great, and the sights are unique and gorgeous.
To quote Timmy...."every time you turn a corner....there is a sight even more amazing than the last". And this was today...not our first day!
... the group went up the tower, which required going up a series of very steep ladders, and I was just not up to it so I took a tour of the Cathedral instead.
As I walked through the cathedral I found myself jumping from one spot to another so as not to step on the tombs embedded on the cathedral floor. I was a little irked by the fact that people go to service at that cathedral and they are amongst the tombs of so many deceased individuals. They ...

Location was great....
I was oddly itchy all night.
Not sure what was going on with this place but there were NO other guests except apparently 1 person who was sleeping in the next room and snored so loud that I felt like we were sharing a bed. The walls were so thin I could hear even his BREATHING. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. CREEPYYYYYYYYYy
This place was just bizarre. The guy was nice enough who ran it but I did feel a bit like I was at a halfway house (not sure why) - It was eerie... The room was OK and the price was fine - It was just odd. Everything felt dirty even though it looked clean. There was a sign in the bathroom asking girls to not use the washcloths to remove makeup. Luckily I don't wear a lot but it was just so weird.
The breakfast was full Irish or whatever but what was put out made me sick enough to not want to order anything- Looked like someone emptied their fridge onto a table ....half used bottles of mayo, ketchup... for WHAT? so weird. rice krispy treats and other weird cereal bars...just really weird.
would not recommend unless all u care about is location. parking was a plus.
