Today we ventured to Ashford Castle. First we took a lovely boat ride on the Lough Corrib.
We were serenaded by Martin, who had a small part in the Quiet Man. The Quiet Man was filmed in the town on Cong, which is very close to Ashford castle.
A swan and her little cygnets, she had six babies in all.
As we disembarked the ferry, there was a bagpipe player welcoming us to the castle.
Never in my life, did I think that I would stay in a Castle.
This was truly an amazing experience.
If only I played chess : )
Today was a lovely day, which ended with a trip to the ballycurrin lighthouse, but the lighthouse will have to have a post of it's own. It was the highlight of the trip.
