Following on from my last post on Athlone in Westmeath, as we continued on our way to Co. Kerry, we stopped again to stretch our legs at Bunratty Castle. The castle is in the village of Bunratty in Co. Clare, close to its border with Co. Limerick, and the present day structure dates from the 15th century. It is a major attraction for tourists, and was an interesting place to take a break on the trip – not the first time we’ve done so.
Beside the castle is the famous Durty Nellys pub. It is an attractive building, although its really more of a tourist attraction than a real traditional local pub. Nice interior too, and even better sitting outside in weather like we had.
An old style Irish telephone box, a rare sight now.
Next stop Kerry.
