We were a little dubious but they put us in Business Class and we had a most delightful trip. Of course, we could not understand a word the flight attendants were saying but we managed. I remember the movie was in Russian. The food was delicious. We were only 2 of 4 people in Business Class. And when Tom asked for Bourbon, the flight attendant had no idea what he said. Finally he said Vodka and she brought out a huge selection of vodkas. It was great.
We flew into Shannon airport to meet up with Tom's mom and brother. Then we drove to Scariff. We had rented a little farmhouse in this tiny town. It was fantastic. We took days trips from our little house. We visited Adare, the Cliffs of Mohr, The Burren and other places. We then drove into Dublin for a few days.
The Irish were wonderful. Ireland was beautiful. And I would go back there in a heartbeat. It was one of the best trips ever. This is only a sampling of pictures. I had so many I couldn't find the time to scan and then post them. Enjoy my memories.
