This morning we left Dublin after we rented a car. Yes, I’m driving in the right side of the car on the left side of the road. It isn’t quite horrible until you get to really small roads. Then I hear Dave gasping as his side hits something. Well, I did pay for the insurance!


On this part of the trip, we have a general outline, but are really taking it as we go. So, we showed flexibility by stopping at the Rock of Cashel without plans! The Rock is an old castle for the Archbishop of Cashel… Essentially, a monastery.


Then we headed off to Blarney Castle where we climbed to the too and kissed the Blarney Stone. Now that we have the gift of gab, I’m sure that we’ll have non-stop car conversation.


Afterwards, we headed to Killarney where we found a small little B&B at the suggestion of our server yesterday. (It’s her favorite from growing up!) The place is a mini castle. It’s right in the Killarney National Park which is our entire day tomorrow. Exciting!

Poochy pups. We saw lots of sheep today which you would have hated.
