We gathered on Friday morning at the Dublin airport. We met Gregg our driver at the airport to begin our Irish adventure. We quickly started our tour and traveled to Malahide Castle for tea and scones and our tour. We enjoyed driving through Phoenix Park and walking about Dublin stopping by sites such as the Department of the Taoiseach, Trinity College, Temple Bar and the Ha'penny bridge. We journeyed west toward Galway, stopping at Darfield Horse farm. In addition to the horses and ponies we got the opportunity to watch and photograph blacksmith Stephen Quinn at work. After our stop at Kylemore Abbey, we continued to Abbeyglen Castle near Clifden for the night.
