This place is on a pretty cove away from all the hustle and bustle of Kinsale. The solitude is wonderful. The country house is a little older, but the rooms are very large. We had a balcony overlooking the cove. The hosts are very friendly and their meals are very good. They have a drawing room where guests can gather after a meal to chat. The grounds are very well manicured.

We arrived at Bantry fairly early so decided to drive the Beara Peninsula. Down at the end we took the cable car ride over to Dursey Island and back. Then we headed for Sneem.
Dinner was in a hotel pub and quite tasty although the staff was extremely busy and we had to hunt them down and ask ...
... in the town. A case in point-many locals showed up to the hostel for karaoke night, to listen to a bunch of tourists sing. Badly. That being said, the karaoke was fun. I even got to dance the polka with a fellow Wisconsinite and had a difficult time explaining what American biscuits are to a South African ex-pat living in London.
When we finally made it into Dublin, our last stop was the Guinness Factory. While it was overrun ...
... The excitement was beaming out of her and we thought not to tear her away from this experience. She made introductions all around and we settled in to a nearby table to also take the opportunity to fully experience the Irish conviviality. A young, almost gypsy like couple pulled out their Irish flutes to play some traditional reels for us as an appetizer for the full Irish band performance later that night.
We were coming to realize that ...
