July 2014- Ireland Trip

Blarney Castle

Cliffs of Old Head
The highlight of July was a trip to Kinsale, Ireland.  We got to spend a wonderful week at a condo in downtown Kinsale with Aunt Kathy Murphy.  During the time we were there we spent quite a bit of time exploring.  Some of the highlights included the kids first flight, including an overnight transatlanic flight to Shannon, Ireland.  From there, we spent some time visiting the local pubs including some of our favorites like Kitty O Se's and the White House.  I even found the seafood restaurant I went to years ago with friends called Jim Edwards.  Pat and Kathy got to golf at Old Head while the kids and I went exploring some local beaches.  We went on a boat tour of Kinsale Harbor and visited Charles Fort.  Of course no trip to Ireland is complete without a tour of Blarney Castle and a visit to the Jameson's Distillery.  Our final excursion was to find the Drombeg Stone Circle in County Cork.
