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 of 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:
