Well, the last time I posted Ireland photos was back at the beginning of October. I started working on the next batch and then in November, the whole house got sick! We had a horrible chest cold that morphed into pneumonia for three of us (including the baby), sinus infections and laryngitis. It was so bad that we had to cancel my big open house I do the day after Thanksgiving!!! Then of course December was spent recuperating and getting ready for my Grandson’s first Christmas! Didn’t even get the tree up till the week before Christmas! That’s late for me! January rolls around and we were all sick again! This time it was a head cold that went into an ear infection for one of my daughters and the poor baby was so stuffed up he slept propped up in bed with mommy and daddy. In fact most of us slept sitting up for a good week!
Now it is February and I have finally gotten back to my Ireland photos! So now there is a collection of five galleries from my time spent in County Kerry with family (people who live there make GREAT tour guides and driving navigators!) and two galleries of the two major Castles we visited! We went to Bunratty on the way to Kerry and then after spending a week with family traveling around Dingle Peninsular, the Ring of Kerry and other fascinating places we headed out to Blarney where we stayed two nights in a little B&B literally across the street from Blarney Castle! You just walk across the street, through the town park and there you are at the entrance to Blarney Castle and gardens! And no, I didn’t kiss the Blarney Stone, but one of my sisters did!
