    Love the TR and pictures, Kathie! Glad you could find food to eat. I wasn't a big fan of the "Irish breakfast," but other meals were okay. I agree about the scones................yummy! Keep the pictures and TR coming.

    It was beautiful. There are gorgeous flowers everywhere as you can see. Hanging from buildings, growing out of stone walls, gardens.

    To think that monks built the monestary at Glendalough in the 6th century and some of it like the roof at St. Kevin's, has survived.......just amazing.

    More to come.

    Yeah, that Irish breakfast did nothing for me either. I don't do eggs, and the puddings.....I wouldn't have eaten them anyway but got really grossed out when I found out how they made them.

    I did like the rashers......I'm not supposed to eat tham but they did help keep me 'regular' TMI!!!

    They had muselix cereal so I usually had that with some fruit.

    The cafe in the hotel offered a Mediterranian plate of bread and dips for lunch and it was awsome. 4 different light and dark whole grain breads served with 4 dips. Hummus, sun dried tomato pate, whole sun dried tomatoes in olive oil & olive oil with balamic vinegar mix. Steve & I split it for lunch with a salad!! Excellent.

    I should have had Steve take pictures of the food, but I never thought of it. Some of the places, the presentation was as interesting as the food.
