Heh, just got back from a trip to Ireland
. Business of course...
Ireland is, well, great. Very friendly people, really open, nice countryside and we had lots of luck with the weather!
had told me (warned me rather
) that Ireland was a country of gloom
. Well, I suppose I was lucky, we had no rain for the entire duration of our stay. To be honest, none of the Irish people
I talked to considered the weather we had normal... :)
Our bed and breakfast, Ashbrook House
up on River Road
in Castle Nock
- hope that's the right spelling
, was great: luxurious rooms, great service and above all, very quiet. River road is a little road of off the main roads, next to this nice river I forgot the name of, with, as I heard, excellent breakfast
. (Of course I always missed breakfast)
I tried to get some really Irish food over there, but with all the Indian
restaurants over there that was quite a challenge. I managed though... :) Pubfood
is ok, and steaks are no problem!
Only one thing failed to please me: the pubs all close at around 11 PM. What a pity!
All in all (I won't bore you with the details of my assignment there) Ireland is a pretty nice country (unless you get stuck with bad weather) with nice people.
I think I am going to spend my next holiday
