Chauffeurdriven tour to Cliffs of Moher and Killarney

This morning we left Galway as we began our journey to the south. Our first stop was in the town of Lisdoonvarna, famous for its matchmakers. Not the kind that make matches to light your fires, but the kind who will find you a wife or a husband. I think the place got to Sean and that maybe he was showing an interest in finding an Irish colleen to bring home with him. In the picture above we have Sean, to the left, and Sheryl and Jack on the right. Unfortunately the matchmaker bar was not open at the time we were there, but i think Sean got a few phone numbers.
The Cliffs of Moher was our next stop, and here we have my pals, obviously enjoying the wonderful fresh air, and the magnificent scenery.

The mist started to roll in, but did not spoil this great photo of Sheryl and Jack.

Our next stop was the wonderful old Tridentine church in the center of Adare. This church dates back many centuries, and is now the main parish church in Adare. It is really popular for weddings, and i wonder did that thought enter Sean's head after our visit to Lisdoonvarna? I will keep you posted.
Adare is one of Ireland's most popular little towns, and renowned for its lovely thatched cottages, which you can see in the background.
Sad to say that only last week two of the cottages were destroyed in a fire.I am sure that before too long work will start on the restoration of these. Adare would not be the same without them.
We were all tired and hungry by the time we reached Killarney, and here we have Sheryl, Sean, and Jack just finishing off their snack in the Plaza Grill at the Killarney Plaza Hotel. Sheryl had a delicious gluten free vegetable soup, and the rest of us went for the wonderful sea-food chowder, with home made brown bread.  The chowder here is my own favourite, and i love my chowder. What more need i say.
This was another really lovely day with really nice people. Sometimes my job is not really a job at all.

Tomorrow we head for the unbelievable Dingle peninsula. Of all the Irish peninsulas, this one is by far my favourite. I hope to have more nice photos for you then.
