May 27, 2011 - Fennel, what a seed

Our last day was a nice one, lots of hanging out, walking up and down the streets of Dun Laoghaire. There are lots of cafes and pubs/bars, but the shopping isn’t geared to the tourist. There’s good and bad to that depending on what you’re looking to purchase. We went back to Harrys Bar Café for lunch and picked up a pastry from a nearby shop. The morning was by far the best. We took a long stroll down the east pier. The sun was shining and the wind as mild as it has been in a week. Though hardly calm by any means. Lots of people walk, some...

May 26, 2011 - Saying Goodbye to Humphries

We left Galway and crossed the mid lands to our final destination. Accommodation wise we most certainly saved the best for last. Our last two nights are in Dun Laoghaire (pronounced Dun Leery) (honest) at the Royal Marine Hotel. The outside is palace like, but the room we have is very modern with nice amenities. It is located beside Dublin Bay. The area also has a lot to offer in the way of shopping and dinning and frankly is a great place to burn up the last hours here in Ireland. From Galway, we went to Roscommon, where my paternal...

Jun 23, 2009 - Our first Irish Pub

Walked all around Dun Laoghaire Monday. Its a nice town right on Dublin Bay. Karen and I have both adjusted to the time change although as I write this it is 5am BST (midnight at home). No matter what time zone I am in I guess I am destined to wake up early. We went to Purty Kitchen for dinner last night. A local Pub recommended by the hotel. I had the lamb special and Karen got Guinness roasted beef. Check out the pictures of her drinking her "lady size/ half pint" glasses of Guinness. I have known her for 27 years and have never seen her...

Jun 22, 2009 - We made it to Ireland

We had a nice flight from Boston. Flight was pleasant and ride was smooth. Sun never really set the whole flight. Made it through customs with no problem. They asked me (Shaun) why I was here and where I was going. Karen skated through with no questions asked! Taxi ride to the hotel was an adventure. Riding on the wrong side of the road at 4:30am in the morning was pretty sporty. Hotel is wonderful and they let us into the room at 7am. We slept until noon and then walked around. The pictures are from the pier. Thanks to mom for help with...

Jun 5, 2007 - Chester to Dun Laoghaire

We left Chester this morning on our way to Holyhead to catch the ferry to Dun Laoghaire (Dun Leary) in Ireland. Our journey took us across northern Wales thru picturesque countryside and villages. Upon our arrival in Holyhead we checked into the ferry port and boarded the ferry. The ferry was a high speed boat which crossed the Irish Sea between the UK and Ireland in 99 minutes (the normal crossing time on a regular ferry is approximately 3 ¼ hours). The ferries are very modern and much more appealing than the BC ferries that most of us are...
