Hmmmm lets see, where to start! Yesterday after a much needed nap we got up and went to dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe! I know i know...we can eat at those in the states, but we were too hungry to search any further!! After dinner (and a bottle of wine) we decided we needed to find a local pub with some live Irish Music! Well that we did!!! It was super packed and super loud, but fun to see/hear local sounds!! After a bit we found a seat at the bar, and after ohhh about 10 minutes, a pair of lovely Canadian ladies set down beside us! They were there for one of their 50th birthdays! They LOVED us.... and Paddy's (whisky). So they bought us several shots.... which i'm sure we could have done without! We also met a lady from Texas. She was a funny little lady :) We were out way later then we should have been, but it was well worth it!
This morning we woke up and headed to Kinsale (south coast). (Well, first of all i should tell you that we rented a car. I've never driven on the opposite side, or a stick shift that's on the left. And i have to say, i'm pretty impressed with myself!) Now for those of you who know me, know that when i'm a little hungover i just want to eat!! So after much complaining we stopped in a small town of Cashel. Well thank god for my hunger cause this place was AMAZING! I've been trying to post pics on my facebook, but for some reason that site and this one won't let me download right now. I'll keep trying. After walking around all day we got back on the road. But not before making a dumb american mistake!! We set in the car for ohhhh about 10 minutes and COULD NOT figure out how to get the damn car in reverse! We asked a couple passing by and they were nice enough to help us out. I'm sure they got a kick out of that! We made it to our bed and breakfast around 6 pm. It's in an amazing location and has amazing views! We're about 10 minutes from the town. After getting settled in the room we decided we needed to eat again :) We went into town and wondered for a while. Kinsale is a very small harbor town, but with a ton of character! I wasn't able to take any pictures because it was dark, we're hoping to get back down there in the morning on our way to the Blarney Castle!
The plan for tomorrow is to head back up to Cork to see the Blarney Castle and of course kiss the Blarney Stone! After that we're back on the road again, this time headed to Kenmare. Hopefully i'll be able to get some pictures posted!!
