We have only been on our Irish Advanture for 3 days but it feels like much much longer!
In a good way…obviously 😊
We have already seen so many things and been to so many places that it feels like we have been here at least a week!
The first day was spend mostly on a ferry journeying to the foreign land across the see that is Ireland! As ferries go it was ok, it gave us free coffee, not free lasagne and got us where we’re wanted to go, who could ask for more!
We spent the first night parked up at a tiny site at which we were the only people 🙂 It was overlooking (and pretty much surrounded by) an inlet… from the sea 🙂
The site was lovely and watching the wading birds in the morning at low tide was fantastic!
Day two took us to Tintern Abbey. Not the one in wales…an offshoot of that one. The Cistercians didn’t seem inventive with naming…Still it was a lovely abbey although very strange as it had been altered to be a house in the 1600s
It was also the home of my new favourite window 😊
the second part of day two took us to Charles Fort at Kinsale and the start of the Wild Atlantic Way 😁
Charles Fort was amazing, it stood from 1682 until the Irish independence in 1922, it was subsequently burned during the Irish civil war… this makes is both a fort and a ruin, which is an awesome combination if you ask me!
such photogenic places… and only the start of the Wild Atlantic way 😁
We camped up for the night at a little site just outside Timoleague which came with lovely views, reasonable facilities and an extremely hopeful and friendly dog 😁
