Ireland: Day 2

We ate an okay breakfast at the hotel. Rowan got to eat as much toast as he wanted, so he was happy. We then walked about a quarter of a mile to the nearest Airlink stop to take the bus to the airport. That bus only comes every 30 minutes, we just missed one, and the bus was late, so we had to wait for about 40 minutes. One of the ladies on the bus didn't want me to stack my bags on top of hers even though she had spread her bags out across the entire baggage area. The stroller ended up getting stacked on her stuff.

We got to the airport and found our rental car. The car seats that Avis rented us were not the best, but they did the job. We spent the next six hours driving to Portmagee, which is where our rental house was.

We found the house without any issues. The house had a peat fire, which was interesting. It is much harder to get a peat fire going than a wood fire. Outside the house there were two huge piles of pieces of peat that I'm assuming had been gathered locally.

We found some "Dingle Gold" cheese at the local store. Emily and I both liked this cheese.

Rowan got up once that night because he couldn't find his bun, but Niamh slept through the night.
