Last night we stayed outside of Cahir in an apple orchard...no joke! The campground is a family run establishment that also runs a cider press and apple farm. We pulled in and thought it was awfully quiet, it was closed. October 1st is the closing for many campgrounds in Ireland so we are adjusting plans accordingly. They luckily let us stay for the night and even gave us a free bottle of cider. It was really good, but gave us bad gas so the camper has some funk and we had to drive with all the windows open this morning.
We are currently in Kilkenny. We found an open campground that is only a 15 min walk from town. We will stay two nights here and probably venture out to a town called Inistioge. It is suppose to have beautiful gardens and trails. Tonight we hope to catch some live music and dance in neighboring pubs. The celtic festival is currently taking place. Today drivng was fun. Scott is getting too good at it. I sometimes I feel he thinks he is in a Subaru WRX rally car. I must remind him that it is still camper van. Today my co-pilot
skills included reading maps, gps and flipping in the side mirrors so we could squeeze by oncoming traffic ! I hope he can figure what side of the street to drive on when we return :-) Wll check back in tomorrow from the same coffee shop
