Ireland - Part 5 Special Dinners

Sunda Scoop
When we first got to Ireland, we part of a small group "gold club" and were treated to a very special dinner.
It was held at The Mustard Seed at Echo Lodge.
Ballingarry, Adare
Here's a better picture that I found.

During cocktails we were invited to tour the gorgeous grounds of this 10 acre estate.

You can stay here too!
Wouldn't it be (another) beautiful wedding spot?

Dinner was truly special and we were entertained by some Irish musicians (flute and violin) that were the perfect touch to an amazing night.

The next day we were on our own while the other part of our group arrived but that evening was the full group reception dinner at the Carriage House on the grounds of Adare.  

More shots of the lovely grounds of Adare...

As we walked over we first heard, then saw this:
and this...

More entertainment! Irish dancers!!
My Manx (that's Isle of Man) pen pal of 30+ years met us over there after dinner and we all headed down to the Tack Room at the Manor.
I don't even know if I can do this place justice.  It's the most fun pub/bar in the cellar of Adare where nightly you will be entertained by the resident piano player.  I can't hear all those Irish songs without thinking of the nights we spent in the Tack Room with our friends.
Stay tuned to hear about Killarney...
