Ireland: Castletownshend

Shall we get back to some more Ireland photos?  I think so!  These are from Castletownshend, County Cork, which is reportedly where Michael Flatley (of "Lord of the Dance" fame) lives.  One of our goals while in Ireland was to stay overnight in a castle, so we went there to stay at a B&B called (appropriately enough) "The Castle," which sits right on the harbor.

Our room was at the top of this tower, and our window looked out over the harbor:

There were a couple of swans that hung out in front of the Castle, and they were enormous!

We made friends with stray cat outside too:

Then we walked up the hill to find a pub for dinner, and we passed some pretty sights along the way.  The figurines in this window cracked me up:

Castletownshend is a fishing town, and someone's gear was hanging outside the front door:

And this was just plain pretty:

We found Mary Ann's, the town's best restaurant:

Our dinner was delicious!

The next morning we got up early and hit the road again . . . more photos to come soon!
