For most of our time in Ireland, we’ve been staying in B&Bs, which have generally been pretty nice, clean, and with friendly, helplful owners. However, the rooms do vary quite a bit between “just big enough for the bed to fit” to something much more comfortable. Some had small TVs, and some had none. Some showers were hot, and some were not (don’t get me started about water pressure). I’m not really complaining about them though because we did enjoy them, and the breakfasts were perfect.
After 3 weeks though, we decided to splurge and celebrate Eric’s birthday in style. We spent a night at Ashford Castle – see below – and enjoyed all the amenities and walking the grounds. As we check out, we are preparing to head to England. I’ve been spoiled now and if I can’t continue to stay in the castle, I’ll have to leave Ireland.
