We took this ferry to Ireland , it was smooth sailing and took approximately a little over an hour . We had our lunch on board and did a little shopping too .
Here is our first hotel in Ireland , the Slieve Russell , beautiful !!
This beautiful girl graced the stairway .
The grounds around the hotel were amazing with many gardens and interesting things to see .
This is apparently the smallest church in the world , super tiny , squeezed between those buildings .
This was the floor inside , do you see a quilt pattern ?
This golden Rose was gifted by the Pope to the Cathedral
Donna and Mom enjoying the entertainment
A mixture of song and dance in this performance , we had excellent entertainment .
Now we are in Bunratty Castle Hotel , another lovely place to stay .
Some of the housing in the area , you don't see wooden houses here , all stone or brick .
Love the fences .
Donna enjoying some time with the horse , I am sure she was missing her own .
I had a chance for a little pat too , as you can see it was a little cooler this particular day , I had several layers on but was comfortable .
A beautiful castle we went to visit , I should have kept a journal so I could remember the names .I just didn't have time to be honest , I did bring along a journal but the only thing in it is a sprig of Heather .
Well I will leave it at that for today but before I go I have given a little thought to the Postcard exchange and the fact I am so unorganized so lets put the date ahead to November 15th . If you already have your postcard made that is wonderful , I hope to get names assigned by the end of this week and if anyone else is interested please let me know as soon as you possibly can with your info . I didn't realize it would take me so long to return to normal after my return home so I am sorry for this delay but I think it will all work out for the best . Thanks for your understanding .
Thanks for stopping by and I will share a little more of Ireland another day .
