Where I stayed
Next to the Slieve Bloom
Alas, disappointment again... we arrived in Ireland only to find the sun shining with mild weather after being told to expect nothing but rain. But as travelers do, we pushed past this pain and endured this near perfect weather for most of the first week. The only small exception to this was our visit to the west coast where you may tell by the photos that the weather had turned a little.
We arrived in Kinnitty for our first week in Ireland and were pleasantly surprised to find our new home was only meters from the local pub in a lovely country setting
We went to Kinnitty Castle where we celebrated Nell’s birthday down in the medieval dungeon followed by a pub crawl which was only one pub and fortunately that was next door to our home. Lucky we didn’t have too far to walk. We went trout fishing the next day and there where heaps of trout, but them Irish trout are smart, they know the difference between real food and imitation. After a few attempts at casting the fly both Nell and myself came to the conclusion that the hire equipment must not be as good as what everyone else was using as they seemed to be able to cast 3 times as far with greater accuracy.
