My first trip to Ireland dropped me off in the 'prettiest village' in the country, Adare. The village of Adare is found in Limerick County, Southern Ireland.
After a sleepless flight from San Francisco (apparently I was a tad excited) resulting in having not slept in 24 hours, the immediate need to learn how to drive on the left hand side of the road with steering wheel on right and a faulty GPS System-my boyfriend and I made our way from the Shannon Airport to Adare. My was that an experience!
Upon finally enterring into the town of Adare, we pulled off to what we thought was our place of stay for the next week, Adare Manor. We actually took an early left and pulled into the Adare Manor Golf Course parking lot.
We pulled into the Manor grounds (800+ acres of land) and we were in awe. Lush green grounds, ruins along the property, a river nearby, championship golf course on site and one of the most incredible buildings that I've ever seen, the Adare Manor House.
WOOT WOOT, Ireland Adventure, here we come!
Well, after a 2 hour power nap that is..
