Thursday 9/24: Just after I got my coffee and came into the living room of the cottage I looked out the window and saw one of the brightest double rainbows I have even seen; I guess Ireland is ...

You can visit on a tour, but the climb to the beehive huts at the top is pretty harrowing. Figured we didn't need to fall off into the ocean! On our return trip home we followed our landlady's directions for a backway or shortcut home!!! Although the road was narrow and steep and over two passes, it was well worth the ...
