The Fitzgerald castle in Adare.

The Fitzgerald family were a powerful Norman family until they decided to back the wrong side and ended up losing everything. This fine castle is located just on the outskirts of the lovely town of Adare and a guided tour of this castle is well worth taking. All through the tourist season these tours are available and i highly recommend that you avail of one.

Looks like i have two lovely pals here. Kaitlyn and her family toured with me last Summer, and we did have a lovely time. The wonderful Irish Wolfhound was not a part of the touring party, but we mad his acquaintance on our farm tour. This photo was taken on the Muckross House farm tour in Killarney where you can visit restored farm cottages and enjoy learning at first hand just how life used to be not too long ago in Ireland. You can see all the farm animals, visit four different farm cottages, and see the farmers wives at work, making home made bread, home made butter, and learn all about how their house work was accomplished, without all of the gadgetry that we have nowadays.
This is a tour that i personally love, and always enjoy. Obviously Kaitlyn enjoyed it too.

As i write, i am listening to a howling gale outside, and making sure that today i do not venture far from home. It is a wild, wet, and windy one indeed. Surprisingly, it is not too cold, and so far we have escaped low temperatures, unlike what i hear is happening in many of the northern states in the USA, and elsewhere.

This is the time of the year when i am engaged in planning vacations for people who wish to visit Ireland this coming season. We do have available dates still, so if you are interested in making an enquiry,then let me know as soon as possible. I hate to disappoint anybody.
