I then went for a walk along the promenade down to a small shopping centre and bought a bottle of wine and a bottle of Coke for Edie, which will last us the two nights we are here. Dinner was lovely and they actually had a reasonable movie on TV. Tomorrow we are heading into the Connemara area and having lunch at Kylemore Abbey. More of that ...

Southern Ireland grabbed my heart on a level that only Amsterdam and Prague have. I'll always dream of returning and I'll always dream of retiring there. Next stop, Dublin to see where Guinness is ...
