Chauffeurdriven tours of Ireland west and south west

 This morning, the two guys took off on the Gap of Dunloe tour, while Mariette and i left for Ross Castle, and Muckross House. Mariette was not too keen on the boat section of the Gap tour and felt that she would enjoy the Muckross estate and the farm tour there. This actually did work out very well, and she really did have a great time.
 Mariette at Ross Castle, our first stop off point on our tour today.
 I took this selfie at Muckross house. I think i have room for improvement. Muckross House was where Queen Victoria stayed during her ill-fated visit to Killarney during the eighteen hundreds, when her visit was cut short due to her husbands illness.

 Here we have Mariette in the wonderful gardens at Muckross, with this majestic tree in the background.

  One of the old restored farmhouses.
 A visit to the Muckross farms is really nice, and also very educational. You can see the farmers wives, making soda bread, and griddle bread, and their own home made butter.


There are four cottages of varying sizes on the tour of the farmhouses, and i would highly recommend this tour, especially for animal lovers, and also children.

 Here i am with these two fine, and very friendly Irish wolfhounds
 Mariette, pictured here with these majestic farm horses, before we took a ride through the farm roads.
 All aboard for our tour of the winding farm roads.
 Here we have a farmers wife with her churn, as she makes her fresh butter.
It is not often these days that you get the opportunity to watch a blacksmith at work in the old traditional way.

Later we arrived down at the harbour at Ross Castle, to meet ,and greet, our Gap of Dunloe warriors, on their return from their tour. They had a great time also, and will have much to remember about this novel tour.
