Brief recap since I don't want to retype the whole thing, and I don't have time for slides today. So we were stuck in Limerick with the option of going home or spending the night at the cliffs of moher, neither of which was very appealing. We decided that the only thing to do was rent a car. So we hopped on the bus to Shannon Airport where the car rental places live. We found out that the driving age for rental cars is 23 here, so Nicole got to be driver. Also apparently automatic is hugely expensive. So learn standard if you want to rent a car here. We went to the Cliffs of Moher that day and got there around sunset (6 PM) We got some good pictures in before that though. Then we went back to Cork since we hadn't packed for an overnight trip. We went to the Dingle Peninsula the next day and then drove down to Killarney and stopped for the night in Killorigan. We got up early the next day and went round the ring of Kerry and then back to Cork. and on Tuesday morning we turned the car back in. So, it was fun, there are lots of pictures that I will post when I've got time, and lots of road trip stories I will probably wait till I get back to tell, as they don't translate well to text.
