Dubai to Dublin was indeed a long day. It’s a bit of a blur so nothing to report on other than Louise has finally ben convinced that aisle seats are the way to go.
Picking up our hire car was not too much of a drama – and we managed to get out of Dublin on the M8 motorway headed towards Cork. We stopped for Lunch at The Kilford Arms in Kilkenny and picked up some supplies for our travels.
Google maps let us down a bit in Cork when we arrived – declaring we had arrived at our destination when we could quite clearly see our hotel across the River Lee. Cork City Hall looked a bit grand for the likes of us.
Side Note: Louise will be guest posting soon on my difficulties with drinking black coffee from takeaway cups.
Not long after our arrival, we met Tony and Dolly, Mary, Jack, and Eimer and Ruby in the foyer of the hotel for coffee. Coffee lasted about 5 hours.
A big thanks to Eimer and Michael for taking me out on Friday night (after coffee with the fam). Photos below of Charlies Bar and The Phoenix
