Ireland With Dumbo Day Four – 10 May 2015

Not too early a start, headed off circa 10:45 after hearty breakfast.  An iffy weather day.  Daisy insists on continuing to do the driving so I can navigate.  Good roads down to Cork/West Cork.  Get some petrol at the last chance saloon on the motorway.

Get to Enniskeane and call Helga, who explains that Enniskeane  is her postal town, not really where she lives – perhaps she should have explained that to us earlier – but between her attempts at navigation (the hamlet name, Kilcolman, was no help for the satnav) and some  common sense, we found her place.

Spent a few hours enjoying a lovely smoked salmon lunch and then onto Inchydoney Island only 20 minutes or so further on from Kilcolman.  It looks like a super place with very friendly staff.  Plugged for a lighter meal in the pub of the hotel/spa, although the portion sizes were large. Daisy had an open sandwich of tiger prawns. I had “Singapore noodles” with duck confit legs and we shared a profiterole desert.  Early night.

Photographs from the whole of our trip to Ireland are gathered in an album on Flickr, click here.
