By our sixth day in Ireland we'd more or less adjusted to the time difference. It was nice having World Cup games to fall asleep to at night as well. Funny what big soccer fans the kids became when they realized it meant they could stay up later. ;)
Jameson Distillery in Midleton, which had this interesting contraption out front that I doubt was an actual working train.
steampunk fairy house.
Blarney Castle, nearly 600 years old and home of the famous Blarney Stone. By midmorning it was very crowded with other tourists, as the castle is also a popular destination for locals. Took some creative composition to get shots without other visitors in them.
Killarney, we headed out into the country a bit to the Bleachfield Bistro for a home-cooked dinner and some traditional entertainment. Here a young Irish dancer waits to begin her performance.
Not even halfway through our trip, and we'd already gotten to see and do quite a few wonderful things!
