Ballykissangel and home to the beautiful Avoca Weavers Watermill where we enjoyed a very delicious lunch. Sadly the village looked like it was suffering from the effects of the dramatic slump in the Irish economy but, as with everywhere we visited, the people were wonderful - warm and welcoming and always happy to help.
Ireland gave us many gannet sightings and we really felt Mum was there with us every single time.
Minx's 11th birthday brunch at Strawberry Field Pancake Cottage, just off the Ring of Kerry. Should be compulsory for anyone visiting Kerry to visit this fantastic little pancake house. Minx chose banana, chocolate chips and cream, Mr Moog had smoked salmon and sour cream with leeks, Monster opted for chocolate chips, chocolate sauce and ice cream, while I enjoyed goats cheese, thyme and honey. Yum!
Daniel O'Connell. We found this gorgeous place towards the end of our holiday and really need to go back and spend more time there. Monster loved it and indulged his new found love of 'rock climbing'.
And finally, one more rainbow - a double one! This time in Sneem, our nearest village and home to the superb O'Shea's pub where we had one of the best meals of our entire holiday and a rather lovely pint or two of the black stuff.
I hope you enjoyed that 'small' selection of our many many holiday photos. Ireland totally captured our hearts and we will be back for more :o)
Those of you who haven't been able to leave comments because Blogger is being stoopid, I do apologise and have been onto the Blogger forum to see if I can find out what's wrong. I've tried changing a couple of settings but have no idea if it's worked. Please email me if it's still playing up.
Be back soon with a little bit of spinning xxx
