Off to Ireland tomorrow. Well, not exactly. Off to Holyhead on Anglesey for an overnight stay before going by Seacat across the Irish Sea on Thursday. Then driving across to Galway on the west coast for 5 nights. We're taking a couple of friends who are over here from Canada and who have never been to Ireland before. Action-packed few days organised for them - Tipperary, Connemara and Mayo - don't those names just roll off the tongue and conjure up images of Ireland.
I love Ireland's west coast - magnificent scenery and the Atlantic waves crashing against the rocky shore.
The Connemara mountains are beautiful too, and our Canadian friends want to see some of the locations where 'The Quiet Man' was filmed there.
Am getting excited now. I LOVE Ireland!
