Our first stop was in the renowned town of Adare, often spoken of as the most beautiful town in Ireland, and famous for its majestic Adare manor, which is now a five star luxury hotel. The Manor is closed for renovation works at the moment, but the town of Adare is open to all. There is also the fine old Fitzgerald castle on the outskirts of Adare, and that also is worth a visit. The old Trinitarian Abbey, in the center of the town, is a fabulous church, and has become a much sought after church for weddings. In the picture above, we have, from the left, Peter, Jan, Annika, and Iren. Jan looks like he is doing his impersonation of River Dance, with a little help from Peter.
The interior of this wonderful church in Adare.
Another of the many attractions in Adare is the thatched cottages, which you will find along the main street there.
Once again, here we have, from the left, Iren, Annika, Jan (in hiding) and Peter.
It was cool at the cliffs today, but that did not deter my friends, who enjoyed their climb to the top, and their wonderful views of the Atlantic ocean, and the Aran Islands offshore in the ocean below. Here we have Jan, going solo in this picture, at the mighty cliffs.
Now he is joined by his lovely wife Annika, who looks well wrapped up, and nice and warm.
And finally, all the group together, happy and smiling.
Although our time together was limited, we managed to pack in a whole lot of exciting places, and also discovered all that Peter could have asked for with regard to his ancestral past.
This was a really nice time for me with my new friends, and i hope that they enjoyed their time with me as much as i enjoyed my time with them.
If you wish to contact me just send me a message and i will do the rest.
Take care for now.
