  • The Philosopher's Stone (Cottage)Boris is a German I met a week or so ago at the hostel in Doolin; he was reading a book on philosophy, the gist of it being can philosophy be taught in the same way that physics or history Posted by johnward in The Boy from Killcrossduff | Jul 29, 2014
  • Old School Full IrishForget all the fancy Dan restaurants and cookery schools that have popped up all over Ireland in the past 20 years or so.

  • Monday 21st July (Elton)After reviewing our itinerary last night, we decided that a 3.5 hour drive to Blarney was not going to be enjoyable for any of us. I am navigator on the trip, Ilona much prefers to drive, and it suits us Posted by riteoh in UK & Baltic 2014 | Jul 21, 2014
  • Sunday 20th July (Ilona)We set off on our long drive to Northern Ireland today at 9am. After crossing the border from Ireland to Northern Ireland, we arrived in Belfast at about 11:30. A few differences that we noticed... - In Ireland, Posted by riteoh in UK & Baltic 2014 | Jul 20, 2014
  • Saturday 19th July (Elton)The plan before we left home, was that were going to drive to the west coast today, to see the Cliffs of Moher. We had a rethink. It's a three hour drive at least, which is more than sufficient time Posted by riteoh in UK & Baltic 2014 | Jul 19, 2014
  • Friday 18th July (Ilona)We awoke to find it had been, and was still raining. So we decided the best way to sightsee would be from a Hop on, Hop off bus, but without much hopping off! So that is what we did. Armed Posted by riteoh in UK & Baltic 2014 | Jul 18, 2014
  • Day 42 - NewbridgeGetting to bed at midnight, we were roused at 1am by Paddy yelling out his bedroom window "Get outta ere or I'll shoot ya!" I thought at first he was talking to the wild tom cat that's been bothering his Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Jul 18, 2014
  • Day 41 - NewbridgeNOTE - We're in Northern Ireland, catching up on the blog as we have become rather behind! And it's important to write it down while it's still fresh! To those who send such lovely long emails, a big thank you! Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Jul 18, 2014
  • Thursday 17th July (Elton)The day started out with a reasonably early 8 am departure from Liverpool. Whilst all the information we can find says it should only take a bit over 2 hours to drive to Holyhead to get the Irish ferry, Posted by riteoh in UK & Baltic 2014 | Jul 17, 2014
  • Day 40 - Glendallough9.30am May and Margaret turned up at June's place, ready to take us out to Glendallough. We were still tired and running a little late so they waited while we got sorted.

  • Day 39 - Doolin to NewbridgeWe awoke early in the tent, a number of times, after dropping off to sleep again. The morning was grey but not raining.

  • Day 37 - KillarneyHaving heard the tourist buses head out at 10am, we headed out to the the Ring of Kerry before 9.30am to avoid congested roads. The Ring of Kerry is a loop road around lower Kerry, know for it's picturesque scenery. Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Jul 16, 2014

  • Brendan Murphy - He suckles at Beelzebub's TeatA friend of mine, Brendan Murphy from the Falls Rd in Belfast, works at the coalface that is the BBC; by night, he is apparently, Satan's acolyte, suckling at the Dark Lord's nipples. How do I know this? I know Posted by johnward in The Boy from Killcrossduff | Jul 13, 2014
  • Day 38 - DoolinToday we packed up and headed to Doolin, County Clare. Ro & the kids finished off the bacon & eggs for breakfast and Maria called and said the weather in Doolin wasn't great for viewing the cliffs. We decided to Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Jul 13, 2014
  • Day 36 - KillarneyWe tried to sleep in, and made it all the way to 9am. Joan, the campground owner, said NZers and Australians are known for rising early, as opposed to the Irish. She runs a B&B and said the Australians don’t Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Jul 12, 2014

  • Gilbert & Sullivan have come to IrelandJust when I thought the Garth Brooks fiasco couldn't become more ridiculous, it has.

  • Day 33 - IrelandWe got up late today – still full from last night! Aunty May popped around. She was going to take us to Glendallough but the weather forecast for there was unfavourable so we chatted while Rowan hung out the washing :) I Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Jul 10, 2014
