Jameson's Distillery/Cove on chauffeurdriven tour with Dave Hogan/Dovechauffeurdrive

 Today was our final day together on our tour of the south west of Ireland, and we began with a visit to the fabulous, and famous Jameson Distillery in Middleton county Cork. Here we have Sheri and Mark, posing outside the old building.
Another nice picture at the front of the main building, with the old copper still displayed on the lawn

 Later we moved on the the town of Cove, the main harbour at the mouth of the river Lee in Cork. This was, and still is, the departure port for the Trans Atlantic liners, and was the last port of call for the doomed Titanic. In this picture we have Sheri and Mark, pictured with the Cove Heritage center in the background. This was the departure terminal where all of the passengers gathered prior to departure.
A lovely picture of Sheri and Mark, sitting together beneath the statues of Annie Moore and her two little brothers, who were the first people to register at Ellis Island in 1892.

Today was a really nice day for all of us, and the weather was kind, with nice spells of sunshine. Tomorrow we make our way to Dublin on the final day of what has been a really special tour with two very special people. This has also been a special time for Sheri and Mark, who tomorrow(Wednesday), celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. In this day and age, that really is something special. Well done, but it is very easy to see how you managed to do that. You were made for each other.
Thanks for everything.

Kinsale on Irish chauffeurdriven tour of Wild Atlantic Way with Dovechauffeurdrive and Dave Hogan Dave

 Sunshine at last. What a lovely day we had here today in Kinsale. Here we have Mark and Sheri on the patio at the back of our hotel, the MacDonald Kinsale Hotel on the outskirts of Kinsale. This is a lovely hotel situated in a beautiful and secluded area outside the town. They do have a shuttle service in and out from the town, so you are not isolated in any way.
 A view of Kinsale harbour from the hillside above Kinsale.
 Another lovely picture of Sheri and Mark, with the harbour in the background. The narrow entrance to this harbour can be seen in the background.
 This old building in the center of Kinsale was the location of the exchange and taxation offices.
Mark, admiring one of the many colorful streets in this historic town.
One of the many quaint cottages in Kinsale. Note the window boxes shaped like boats.
Today brought a welcome change to our weather, and after the last few days, we had time to take a  walking tour of the town. This was most enjoyable, and also very educational, as Kinsale is steeped in history, some of it tragic, as it was here that one of the worst defeats suffered occurred.
Long may the sunshine last.
