Our group of adventurers started the week at Knowth and Newgrange after a busy weekend.

The adventurers then left Dublin to traverse the Republic of Ireland over an 8-day odyssey. They experienced the outdoors of Glendalough and of majesty of the Rock of Cashal.

A quick stop in Templemore, then to Kilkenney and Waterford.

We crossed to Killarney to Muckross Castle.

Did the Ring of Kerry (with our guide Jan).

Then north to Limerick on to the Cliffs of Mohr, then through the Burren to Galway.

Aran Islands was planned, but gale force winds postponed, then canceled that adventure, so we spent some time in Doolin. Don’t be fooled by the blue sky. A tremendous wind create a rough sea beyond the rise.

We had a lot of sun, followed by rain, then sun, then wind, then rain, and sun again. Often just in one day.

Lots of memories, good times, excellent meals, music, laughter, and companionship.
