We began our Sunday morning landing at 8:00 AM in Dublin and hooking up with our Enterprise rental car. It was a bit chilly getting off of the plane. A refreshing change from the warm Seattle summer we had been having.
Still exhausted from the flights we trucked on and headed to Glendalough for a quick hike through the cemetery.
Alex adjusted quickly to driving on the left. He had some experience before in the UK a few years back.
This is Glendalough. It was an early medieval monastic settlement founded in the 6th century, only to be partially destroyed by British troops some 800 years later.
What still stands are a couple churches, a tower and an old cemetery here that we walked through.
Later in the evening after we found our B&B in Kilkenny we went out to eat.
We found a couple local beers — Smithwicks and Smithwicks Pale — that we liked.
