After the church, we went in search of the Irish Crystal Centre. We browsed the pretty trinkets for a while, and I ended up buying a couple things. We didn't take the tour because Liz didn't seem to be too into the place, so we headed back to our B&B for a rest. While at the B&B, Liz beat me in a 2-1 Backgammon match, then we sat down to plan out our next day's events. After looking through our tour book and the map, we decided to do a circle tour of some towns up north.
Once we had all our plans set, we were hungry for dinner and went to a pub we found in one of our books that looked good. The difficulty came in trying to find the place with a town that doesn't really believe in street signs. We parked the car again and decided to walk. This was a very bad idea. It was pouring rain and Liz had no idea where the place was. I was at the point that I didn't care what we ate or where we had it, I just wanted out of the rain. We stopped at the first pub we found, and Liz decided she didn't want anything from the menu because she needed "real food" not pub grub, so we had a couple of Guinness and some fried mushrooms then went to tackle the streets once more. We still couldn't find the pub we wanted, so we settled on O'Flattery's a pub/restaurant set below a hotel that was a bit modern, but had good food and the waitress was nice. After dinner and a couple more drinks, we were both done and ready for our beds. We went back to the B&B and were snuggled in our beds by 9pm. It was a hard night's sleep on those beds, but we woke up ready for another day.
