In the past few days, we have had the privilege of visiting some of the sites in Ireland that are most steeped in history and myth and folklore. (more…)
Just a note to let you know that we haven’t forgotten you all! We have had very inconsistent Internet access (even in the places that claimed to have broadband, WiFi, or an Internet cafe in town).
We are taking notes and gathering information and photos to share with you, but we won’t be able to do that until as late as when we get home in June.
We travel to the Ring of Hook, Hook Head lighthouse, Duncannon and Dunbrody Abbey. (more…)
Hello again! Just a quick update to let you know what we’ve been doing on Day 5 and 6 of our trip to Ireland. (more…)
Day 2 in Ireland, we headed over to Kinsale to visit Charles Fort and view the cute little village. Charles Fort was well worth the drive – even after getting turned around in Cork – and we would recommend this site to anyone visiting the area. (more…)
Just posting a quick note to let you all know that we’ve arrived in Ireland!. We drove quite a bit yesterday, traveling down to the ring of Hook drive, then toured Hook Head lighthouse. We’ve got some great photos of the area and audio from the guided tour there that we hope to post within a few days. We also walked around Duncannon fort and Dunbrody abbey, then took a drive through the Comeragh mountains and then back to our self-catering accommodation near Dungarvan. Our internet connections are somewhat sporadic, so our uploads of new podcasts are going to lag behind a bit, but we’ll save up anything we don’t immediately post for later shows.
Fewer than 5 days left ’til we leave for Ireland!!!!!
We give a brief update on the Irish job hunt, talk about work Permits vs Green Cards when looking for a job in Ireland and then include a brief interview with our friend and traveling companion, Lisa. (more…)
