    Your writing confirms a feeling that if I ever went to irelend, I might never leave.

      I’m so happy to hear that. Hopefully that means that I told stories that really conveyed the feeling of the place. Yes, you should go and, yes, you’ll never want to leave.

    We stayed at Adair castle this last spring with our two teen daughters – great, beautiful and friendly place. My Dad was born in Wexford so we went to introduce the kids to the old sod.
    We actually did the high tea there, what a great time!

    Town/ area is beautiful with some really good restaurants. You are so lucky to hang with a wonderful local family! You are a GREAT traveler – love the way you plunge in and meet people.

      Hi Kevin. Thanks for reading and for the comment. For me, travel is mostly about the people I meet. I hope I tell the stories of the people and locations so that people get a feel for what it’s like there. And, of course, I hope I honor those who I meet along the way. You’ll notice that I’ve met some who improved the experiences and some who, well, challenged my patience and perceptions. I’m forever grateful for all of them as they all contributed to the stories and the memories.

      Siobahn – I can’t thank you and your wonderful family enough. I enjoyed every minute of my time spent with you. I hope you’re having a great time in France. Hello to Greg and the girls. P.S. – I want to move to Adare.

      Truly was. And while I’m big on the historical sites, it’ the Irish people who made it so incredible. You will not meet nicer people anywhere in the world (okay, maybe St. John’s Newfoundland but, guess what, most of them or their families are from Ireland).

    It’s brilliant that you met people the first day who you were able to stay with the last day. I guess that is a perfect example of what can happen when you travel without a plan!

      Yes, yes, yes! Just be open to the opportunities as they present themselves.

      Of course I remember you both Aibha. You will be a memory which I hold dear. I’m even going to mention you in the book I’m writing. I wish I would move to Adare too! It’s like a fairytale village.
