“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.” ~Juliet, Romeo & Juliet II, ii, 1-2
OK…..it might be as sweet, but it wouldn’t be known as the town with the L-O-N-G-E-S-T town name. A Welsh town known as Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch. Yes, it’s a real name and a real place. And I guess that poor little Welsh schoolchildren have to learn how to spell it, hopefully in high school or college. 😉
Learning things like this makes me happy. Have a wonderful Monday, Lisa
…..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.
The ocean in all its beauty, Doolin
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
