Chauffeurdriven Vacations in the South and South West of Ireland

I just did not have time last evening to post as my computer was refusing to connect to our hotel WiFi, and that does my head in. 
Yesterday we spent on the Dingle peninsula, but our weather was not very nice, as you can see from this picture, which i took at Slea Head.
 

Despite the nasty conditions we really did have a great day and managed to cover quiet a lot. Here you see the ladies at one of the ancient Beehive Huts near Slea Head. These were ancient stone dwellings.


Some of the communal type Beehives were connected by tunnels, like the one you see Robin sheltering in here.


From the left: Marcie, Robin, Karen, Maura Houlihan, Tea, at the back, Johnna and Kathleen, back right. I took this picture in Maura Houlihan's home near Slea Head. Her house is over five hundred years old, eventhough it has been enlarged and renovated over the years.Maura has the Beehive huts on her land and charges a paltry Euro 2-00 for a viewing. She is a real lady and a great friend.


Last night we enjoyed a lovely Mexican meal in Casita Mexicana in Killarney. This restaurant is located right in the heart of the town in the market area behind Quill's shops.


After our meal it was off on the entertainment circuit with a great selection of pubs offering the best of Irish music. Killarney has an abundance of places where you can relax and enjoy a drink.


This morning we prepared to leave Killarney behind as we visited the magnificent St Mary's Cathedral in the centre of the town. The foundations for this church were laid before the famine in 1845, but the church was not finished until early in the nineteen hundreds. It is a really beautiful church and we all said a prayer for our families and friends, and gave thanks for what was a lovely tour together.


Tonight (Thursday night) the ladies will be enjoying a Medieval Banquet in Bunratty Castle, and staying in this lovely house, Bunratty Villa, which is located right beside the Castle. I will be making my way home but i will be back early tomorrow morning in time to get them to Shannon airport for their flight home to the USA. 
I will miss my Texans.
