|Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, the elegant and the humble.|
I'm back from a magical mystery tour of Ireland. What made this travel adventure all the more special was sharing it with my daughter Elissa. We're both wrapped in green now, and the luck of the Irish, so coming back to emerging Springtime in Sylvania seems like coming around and completing a sacred Celtic circle.

|Waterford, Kilkenny and nearby landscapes. An excellent |
local tour guide, Patrick, lead us around his hometown of Kilkenny.
|Killarney by Elissa. She loved the gluten-free fish & chips, and onion rings! |
We also had a great Thai dinner.
From County Kerry in the southwest we headed north to Bunratty Castle and an interesting "Folk Park" of 19th-century reconstructed or rebuilt Irish homes, then to the fabulous Cliffs of Moher with its Henry Potter feel, and onto beautiful, bustling Galway.
