After being in London for just over a year and not getting much chance to travel it was time to take advantage of one of the cheap Ryanair offerings, and off to Ireland I went for a weekend away. Started out with a night out in Dublin as you do, there are not photos of that, what happens in Dublin stays in Dublin! I then drove south towards Cork, and finally up the west coast to Shannon where along the way I stopped off at the Blarney Castle.
Kissing the Blarney stone…. what I didn’t realise until too late was not only did you have to kiss it upside down but it was across a gap 2 feet wide that is about 7 stories high. Luckily there is a man who is there to hold you steady (he didn’t have to worry about the height he was blind).
