Bravo!!! Glad you enjoyed your trip!!!Such a trip in Ireland we had... 'twas, simply, grand!
Saw your stunning scenery. Did not do all we'd planned.
Didn't matter; what we saw still takes my breath away.
Glad I'm home but 10 days wasn't long enough a stay.
If you go to Ireland and plan to rent a car
Make sure that you bring along a racing superstar...
Which we did. My sister handled driving like a pro.
All I did was program in which way we ought to go.
Narrow, winding, country roads with speeds I thought insane;
80 KPH along a graveled, sheep-filled lane,
Stone wall to the left of you - another on the right...
2 way traffic where just one car found the passage tight.
That is not to mention "roads" that run along a cliff.
Dingle Bay was beautiful but I was frightened stiff,
Looking out my window at a fall to certain death...
We drove that entire loop with me holding my breath.
Ruins dot the patchwork fields of 40 shades of green;
Herds of cows and flocks of sheep with stone walls in between.
Driving into villages with cottages so quaint;
Seemingly competing for the brightest shade of paint.
Seaside towns, a haunted pub, and lots of Guinness stout,
Charging cattle on a Plains of Cashel walk-about.
Met so many friendly people; saw a bit of sun.
I would recommend a trip like this to anyone.
