We first got into a plane to Atlanta which took about two hours to get there. Then we got into another plane to Amsterdam which I slept through since it was 7 hours. After Amsterdam, we took a plane to Dublin which was about 2 hours. Once we arrived we did not stay long because we were not staying in Dublin. We got a car and took it to Killkenny which was about an hour and a half ride. Once we got to our hotel, we just ate dinner and went to bed as it was a very long day.

The next morning we went to the Kilkenny castle which is like every single castle ever built in Europe. The castle had a blue room, a green room, a red room and a photo gallery. The exact same thing but it was still nice. Then we started to walk around the city and went into this brewery tour called Smithwicks. After the tour we got lunch.

At about 700pm, we went to a bar so we could meet to go on another tour, but before that we just watched "curling". I had no idea what it was but the people were going crazy about it. A guy sitting next to us explained the game to us and showed us how tough the game was by taking out his upper teeth. Yuck. We then went upstairs to meet up with people for the tour. The tour was a ghost tour which was pretty cool. After the tour, we went back to our hotel.

The next morning we got up early to go to the next city, Killarney, but before driving there we went to this other castle. But this castle was not like every single other castle in Europe because it was more of a ruin. There was not much to do inside so we just took a bunch of pictures in the graveyard outside.

I've been to the rock of Cashel
Went with the family a few years ago to see the homeland. Ireland is the best place in the world. You MUST have the Guinness. Gives you strength. And tastes better than anywhere else on the planet. Well, perhaps, it is your dad who should have the Guinness. Please send him my regards.

Emmett, Wow long time. Yes, agree Guiness in Ireland is like nowhere else. Loved the brewery. Tried a lot of other beers there and nothing compared. Ohh and this is Mike and not Soifa.
