Ireland - Part 1 Adare Manor

Magical places....
Ever dream of staying in a castle?
That's what we got to do on our trip to Adare Manor in Ireland.
It was truly a once in a lifetime trip (back in 2007).

We flew overnight to Shannon Airport and were whisked off to the 'manor' in the early morning hours.
The manor's architecture and details are amazing.
As weary as we were, we couldn't wait to check in and explore.
Here was our key!  Try sticking that in your pocket.
Our room was fit for was huge!

and check out this all marble bathroom. Also huge!

We were treated to a tour of the grounds of this palatial estate.

It had it's own fishing pond (not quite a moat).
Cork Tree
Can't wait to show you more!
