Ireland 2005 - Part 2

Blarney Castle And Killarney

Saturday - September 10th 2005

Today we had to pick up our rental car. Since we are five people we ordered a Ford Mondeo, unfortunately they had only a Ford Focus left, which was a bit small, but we finally got used to the small space. But there was just one little thing that bothered us. The car had different tires on each side and two were installed against the direction of motion. What happened to that car? After we picked up the rest of the group, we were on our way to our holiday house in Killarney, but before we stopped at Blarney Castle to kiss the stone.

Driving on the left side wasn't that easy at first, but we got used to it. Another problem were the small streets with a wall on the one side and a huge truck on the other side. Finally we arrived in Killarney in the afternoon and moved into our holiday home, Muckross Lakeside Holiday Village, which was really nice.

We bought some stuff at Tesco and then we checked out Killarney. After dinner we toured the local pubs and were pleased that they were all smoke free. A couple of drinks later we returned to our apartment.
