Flag of Ireland  , County Cork,
Wednesday, October 10, 2012

A tad sorry to leave Dingle -just such a delightful little town, wonderful wonderful B and B with such nice sitting areas - lots of room in our room - heavenly bed!!  great shower and bathroom and such dear innkeepers.  Breakfasts had an incredible variety of healthy alternatives - quite a difference from our times in B and B's in UK!

Actualy realizing why we are so thrilled with Ireland - I expected more of a English experience, scenery etc but Ireland is sooo different - the beauty blows me away - every corner you turn, another slice of heaven.  And quick food service!!  within minutes of sitting, right after serving your tea or wine or beer, the food arrives with a great smile and hurry to serve attitude.  Nice..

Excuse was we had to have a lunch stop and so Blarney was just the right distance.  And there were zero crowds so we did the touristy thing and climbed the castle to kiss the Blarney Stone and will hereafter speak far more "eloquently". Didn't last long - heh - words a tad different as we wore ourselves out navigating through crazy Cork and landed in Kinsale pooped and Bha tired of narrow winding roads in the rain. Could have been the lack of sleep the two nights before - too much Craic & wonderful music!!

Landed in Kinsale, tired from driving, drizzly out, rather dark and dreary looking place.  Room ok but our expectations of what Kinsale would be like were different than what we found.  Had a glass of wine to relax after winding, narrow roads and craziness getting through Cork – Rich did admirably!  Our server was not too interested in assisting us but maybe we were just tired.  Wandered the streets, both of us feeling like, ok - time to think of going home.  Found a place for lamb in this seafood town – Jim Edwards Pub and it was actually excellent; short walkabout and fell into bed early – heaven!
