Greetings from Ireland. We are still having a wonderful time and it's hard to believe that we've passed the half way mark. We so enjoyed Bunratty; we stayed in a hotel across the street from the Castle. It was an easy walk; I will say though that we were glad this wasn't our first castle, because it was in poor shape compared to the rest. I'm not sure we would have continued on going to castles if this had been our first.
The hotel was very nice; we had a large room and enjoyed our time there.
Our pace continues to be fast, but we are trying to squeeze every possible site in. I think we will not be stopping for more castles or ruins; though they are wonderful, we are ready for some new sights.
I hope your week has gone quickly.
Sending love your way!
