Finished up our night in Limerick at a very fun pub called Mickey Martins with a bunch of local and Emma the very fun and friendly bartender. Then we enjoyed a great huge pot of steamed mussels at a very affordable price at a restaurant called The Oyster Bar at the Locke Bar on the Abbey River. Today was spectacular with temps in the low 60s and sun all day. We drove around the Ring of Kerry which was so beautiful. Tonight we are in Killarney at the Killarney Avenue Hotel which is the most perfect location and is a beautiful hotel. Went out for a pint and ended up at a great pub called Murphy's where we had a blast with some of the locals Aiden and Pat. Then we enjoyed a delicious dinner of fish and chips at Scots Restuarant and pub. And cant forget about the great rhubarb pie we had for lunch today at the Thatched Roof Cafe while we were on the Ring of Kerry. Martin our driver guide with Brendan Vacations has been so full of great info about the area and Ireland...that is what makes an escorted tour so special is all the added info you get as you drive around the country. Going for a Jaunting Car ride tomorrow around Killarney....which by the way is one of my favorite cities in Ireland.
