So I shared my Top Ten yesterday and really it just didn't cut it as far as all the cool things we got to go, see, and do. So here are a few more highlights for your viewing pleasure.
Hook Head Lighthouse
Hook Head Lighthouse
We didn't get to venture in, because by the time we got there, they were closed up for the night. But man, the roaring sound of the surf and the gorgeous view made it totally worth our while.
|The "Freak Waves" are my favorite part of this sign.|
The Kennedy Homestead
Well, we tried, but after 30 minutes of driving down the skinniest little road you've ever seen, we were terribly disappointed to find it was closed for the season.
It rained and rained and rained and rained. I think we had 3 sunshiney days the entire 5 weeks. Maybe 4. But the company I kept made it all worthwhile. Plus, we didn't let some measly rain stop us!
|We pretty much took these two umbrellas with us everywhere we went and they can be seen in many a photo taken in many a locale.|
We went out several different times during my visit. I was introduced to an amazing beverage called Tia Maria. And I drank a lot of wine. Some nights, too much wine.
|Our first official night out in Limerick of 2012!|
I make no bones about it. I love to eat. And we had a lot of amazing meals on this trip. And I took a lot of pictures pretty much anytime we sat down, but rarely seemed to capture pretty pictures of the food itself this trip.

|Chinese food in Waterford.|
|I made this sandwich with some crazy combination of Southwestern cheese, onion chutney, and lettuce. It actually turned out to be quite tasty, thank you very much!|
|Brunch in County Wicklow.|
|Vinegar and Ketchup. Two chip-eating condiment staples.|
|Costa Coffee Break in Dublin.|
If there is one thing Lisa loves, it's the beach. We spent on particularly chilly (for this Texas gal, anyway), but fun afternoon on the beach at Lahinch. We even bought a kite cuz we're cool like that.
|Please don't steal our stuff of this rock.|
|Let's Go Fly a Kite....and it will stay up too if it's not too windy.|
I had not been to a circus in years. We had a blast!
|Fossett's Circus: Ireland's National Circus|
Thanks so much for stopping by and joining me in reliving our Irish adventures!
