Thinking back and Dromoland

It’s been almost a year since Robert and I got back from our last trip to Ireland in April. This time we stayed 2 nights in Co. Clare at Dromoland Castle, 3 nights in Cork, and 4 nights in Dublin. We usually go to Ireland in the fall, but since we took this trip after I graduated from library school we went in the spring. Spring was beautiful this year in Ireland and we were delighted with the sunny weather. Robert even got a bit of a sunburn. We tried the new direct flight on Aer Lingus from Dulles to Dublin and then took a short flight to Shannon.

I made the mistake of getting a map from Shannon to Dromoland on Google Maps, which indicated Dromoland in a place it could not be. But, we asked at the car rental office and they steered us to the right place, which is about a half an hour from Shannon near scenic Newmarket-on-Fergus. The public rooms seem to go on and on forever, but you are rewarded with pleasant dining rooms and a clubby bar. Robert played an excellent game of golf in the challenging course. If you stay there make sure you avoid running over the ducks in the driveway.
