Ireland Part 1

It’s going to be hard to say goodbye to Ireland, the land is gorgeous, the people wonderful and the sun shines at least once a month to remind you what it looks like.20160515_173827.jpg

Today, I took a day off.  Every day I’ve been working on Dauntless, getting my little projects done.  The new holding tank is in and connected, the bilge pump also, so forward bilge work is almost done.20160515_141652.jpg

Byrne & Woods, Roundwood

So, with the sun out and the buds on the trees getting bigger by the day, I thought it would be a good day to drive to the town of Roundwood, about 70 miles NE of New Ross, about 30 south of Dublin.

Well the drive turned out to be even prettier than expected.  The roads were even more picturesque and the traffic was actually minimal.

The restaurant, Byrne & Woods, lived up to expectations. Here is a link to my review:

  1. Great photos! You’re making me wish we were going to see this lovely country by car instead of a few short bus trips.
