Alley and I took three days in Ireland and discovered that Ireland is a country where you should avoid the big cities and get a car and explore the contryside. Unfortunately we did not do that and was in the city for most of the time. We flew to Dublin and spent a day and half there, the first day was sunny for our half day of walking around and then the second day it was pouring rain all day. We went to a church that was built in the 8th century but it had not been kept up so not exciting. We went to the Guinness store house and walked up and had our free pint in the top of the world's largest pint glass. I ate Irish stew which was really tasty, was not sure if I was going to like the lamb but it was really good. We then headed down to Cork and spent a day there and took a trip out to Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney stone. Blarney was the best part of the trip, we loved the grounds and wished that we could have spent several hours out there instead of just an hour. Cork itself was not a very nice city but we did a lot of walking around. We are planning for the next trip to Ireland going to Galway and the west coast.
