My Favorite Irish Town…

…..has got to be a tie between two.  Doolin and Portmagee.

Doolin has wonderful a wonderful music shop, pubs, music, and the roar of the ocean at its doorstep.

Portmagee has the Skelligs right offshore, puffins about, towering hills behind the village, fishing boats in the harbor, and great pubs also.

Yet I know my favorite Irish village is also the ones I haven’t discovered yet…the ones that are waiting for the next trip and the one thereafter.  🙂   Slainte, Lisa

Fun, Food, Frolic, Festivities, Family

It was a big weekend around here.  A local St. Patrick’s Day parade, dinner and music at McMahon’s, making lots of soda bread and scones (and the eating of them afterwards!).  Hope you all have a blessed St. Patrick’s Day today, and enjoy your friends and family!  🙂  Lisa

Humor to a man is like a feather pillow. It is filled with what is easy to get but gives great comfort.
