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.

... Narrow winding spiral steps played havoc with the knees all day today.
Also on the grounds is a recreated Irish village from the early 1800's prior to the famine. It's along the lines of Sovereign Hill but also very interesting.
Back to Limerick to catch some of the sites missed yesterday. This used to be a pretty rough city and it's still known colloquially as "Stab City". King John's Castle (as in the bad king of Robin Hood times) is ...

Our next stop was Muckross Friary where we strolled through the graveyard, walked through the Humility Door and the girls climbed to the top.
Took a jaunting cart back to the car park.
Torc Waterfall was our next stop. G has ...
... still cut and dry peat to burn as fuel. The peat bogs are not really pretty countryside, water logged paddocks with rows of stacked peat drying. The smell of the peat burning is similar to coal but with a sublte difference it has an earthy tinge to it. We carried on thru the "mountains" to a place called DIngle Bay. Now County Kerry is in the southwest corner of Ireland, so it catches the full fury of the Atlantic swells and winds. The countryside reflects ...
