Mary and I flew from Seattle to Dublin on the 4th of July.  We spent three nights at the Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel in South County Dublin followed by three nights in Killarney, County Kerry, where we spent two full days hiking in and around Killarney National Park. We then moved back toward Dublin where Mary scored a nice room in the Celbridge Manor Hotel.  The following day we flew to Stuttgart, Germany for a delghtful three nights with the gracious Fisher Family of Esslingen am Neckar. It was then back to Dublin where we met up with Patricia, Margret and Gerhard for five days of adventuring around County Donegal from our rented cottage in Lettermacaward. Thanks to everyone who made our trip so memorable- I can't wait to return.
