Dublin to Cork - July 3

Dublin to Cork was all about narrow roads, learning to drive on those roads and castles. Lots of castles, 5 in total.

This is a typical 2 lane road:


Rock of Dunamase:


The castle ruin was in a beautiful spot. It overlooked the country and we could see for miles.




Leaving the castle was this road back to the main highway.  About 10kms of this supposed 2 way traffic, a bit scary at times:


Kilkenny Castle. A beautiful, fully restored castle in the middle of Kilkenny.










The town on Kilkenny:




Rock of Cashel:



An old church in the middle of Cork county:





A smaller Abbey on the church grounds:



Blackrock Casle:


The hydrangeas in Ireland were amazing! Everywhere and vibrant colors:


Blarney Castle:



Waiting to kiss the Blarney Stone:


Jakob and Michael both kissed the Blarney Stone, I did not:
