Chauffeurdriven vacations in West of Ireland 2013
What a lovely beach to have all to yourself. Not a day for swimming though, but Ireland is still beautiful in all kinds of weather.
I have been touring in the south for a few days now, with relatives, and we did have a lovely time. The weather was sunny with showers, and cool, but not cold. We also managed to have a great variety of wonderful food, from fresh fish in Dingle, to Mexican in Killarney. We also had a fabulous Fisherman's stew in the Plaza Grill in Killarney, a very different recipe from anything i have ever had before. The Irish breakfasts were, as always, great and my battered and lightly cooked Calamari in Harrington's in Dingle was really lovely. Now it's back to the gym.
Liz and Sue enjoying their meal at Casita Mexicana in Killarney. Put this place on your list. They have changed their location and are now in the little market square behind Quill's woolen market just off the main street.
Liz and Sue behind the counter in Casita Mexicana, with Eve the proprietress. I am new to Mexican food but i have really taken to it, with the expert assistance of Eve, who is most obliging. Her husband John is the chef and your meal will be cooked to suit your taste. I highly recommend this place....and it will not do any harm if you mention my name to Eve.
Liz and myself with Funghi the famous dolphin in Dingle. Liz has been coming to Ireland since she was twenty years of age and has a great love for this country. Who could blame her.
Johnny Cash sang, "The Forty Shades of Green" and here you can see how the song got its name. We are blessed with beautiful landscapes. Ireland is a photographers delight.
I know that most people in the USA are absorbed with the forthcoming Presidential election at the moment but i expect that next years holidays will not be far from their minds and i expect a bit of a stir very soon. I am always dealing with enquiries and from now on that is what will take up most of my time. If you are pretty sure that Ireland is your destination next year, and you want to secure your dates, it would be wise to get in touch with me as soon as you can. I will be glad to discuss your plans with you.
