We left Killarney to travel to Dublin, driving through limerick and Kildare. We stopped at limerick for lunch and a look at St Mary’s cathedral and King Johns Castle. We walked to the castle and wandered around it then walked around the town. There were many stone walls still dating either 1600 or 1800 still used for property fencing. We found a pub that had a beer garden surrounded by these old stone walls. We also saw a row of thatched roofed houses along the main street.
We had lunch in a little coffee shop then back on the bus to the next stop at Kildare where we visited the national Irish horse stud. It was a very flash horse stables and there was one horse that we recognised called Vintage Crop, it won the Melbourne Cup in 1993. We also looked at a Japanese garden there then drove to Dublin.
After checking into our hotel we went out to a Irish Cabaret night which had River Dancing, singing and a great Irish comedian who had plenty of jokes about Patty and Murphy.
