Ireland

Ireland had always been on my list of places to visit. Lesley and I had the great fortune to hook up with Jonathan and Karen for a week on the Southern tip of the Emerald Isle.

Our B&B between Kinsale and Cork We had to stop at the Jaemson Old Middleton Distillery for a tour and tasting.  Jonthan stopped for a quick picture at the entrance gates. Here is the entrance to the Jameson Old Middleton Distillery. Our Jaunty Cart ride, great fun in the rain On the long voyage across the sea, tight quarters and sea sickness was common Lesley does a 'quick' check of email at the pub Mark graduates from Wiskey U! Jonathan racks up yet another diploma.  The coast of Ireland- another Dramatic Coastal View (DCV)

We had a great time driving around southern Ireland and visiting points of cultural, historical and geographical interests

<p>Rugged coast, spectacular views over the Mull of Kintyre, crashing waves and historical intrigue are reasons why you should make this detour, on the Causeway Coastal Route. <br />
<br />
This headland was important in the 1800s for recording the passage of transatlantic ships, relaying the information back to Lloyds of London. It was often the last hope for Scottish clans beckoning aid from allies in Argyllshire. The walls and ruins of Altagore cashel date back to the sixth century. <br />
<br />
Long before the early Christian church and Irish clans came here, the headland was already remarkable. Torr Head is also an excellent example of metamorphosed limestone and indicative of volcanic rock sequences in Ireland and Scotland.
