Keep up the excellent research!

Research
It is a tough job but someone needs to do it and we will continue to suffer through just as we did in Napa and Sonoma.

The Willard Hotel Lobby

Shady deals in plush locales...
I must admit I'm not a bar person, but I love the names of these bars--Hawk 'n' Dove, Off the Record, and Bullfeathers. Pretty surprising that Sangria and Margarita were fave drinks prepared--I would have thought martinis were more suited to the suit set. And I totally think that the shady deals of our corporate-controlled, so-called democracy are carried out in these plush, off-the-record surroundings. Bravo to you intrepid reporters.

The Willard Hotel Lobby

The Underbelly of D.C.
Who knows what really goes on in some of this places but it is grand to make up stories. I like the ambiance in these places and it is not uncommon for me to sit and sip tea or wine. I love grand old hotel bars that offer history and romance.

Gorman's Cliff Top House

Sharing the experience
It was wonderful to finally talk to you on the phone, and even better, it was whilst you were staying at a wonderful place! Sile is a superb host and the area around the Cliff Top House is well suited to walking and gazing at the lovely scenery. So glad you enjoyed your stay as much as I did!

Island Celebrations
What an excellent tradition to celebrate your anniversary! The trip sounds excellent. It certainly makes me want to make my way to Dublin for a pint and a story! Wonderful photos and description, as always.

Kinsale
It was our favorite and we could spend long periods of time there. A good place for you to hang out when you go back. We loved it.

Kinsale
Kinsale was one of my favorite places when I visited Ireland as well. I had intended to stay there a day or so but ended up enjoying over a week there. I have given serious thought to staying there in the summers when I get a bit long in the tooth for hiking in Colorado. It would make a good home base for exploring from and escape these hot Texas summers.

Always looking for islands
Bob & Janice, glad you enjoyed the blog. Ireland was a perfect location. We'd love to get to the Azores! We will keep them in mind. Local information is always the key to success.
