Glandore in West Cork.

Glandore is a small fishing village and this is a photo of the B&B we stayed in. It was the Bay View B&B and as you can see, it lived up to its name. Phil, who looked after us, couldn't have been a better hostess. Nothing was too much trouble and her breakfasts were delish! I can highly recommend the Bay View if you ever head to Glandore.

This is another view of the little was warm and sunny during our stay getting to around 21 or 22 degrees each day

We had a wonderful time in Ireland and the wedding was just terrific...all 48 hours of it.

Yep, the Irish (and the Aussie contingent) really know how to celebrate....I think Glandore and it's residents will take some time to recover though....

We touched down in Dublin after a what could be described as a very ugly flight from Melbourne, via KL and Heathrow. Five hours waiting at Heathrow for a 50 minute flight to Dublin is not something we will do again.
I will be making our travel arrangements in future and not relying on a travel agent. In fact we had a couple of stopovers like that. It was such a waste of time and so very tiring just sitting around waiting.

Anyway, it's good to be home and back into a routine...sort of. I'll have some more photos through the week and promise not to bore you with too many.


  1. Oh wow! It looks gorgeous. Welcome back!

  2. Glandore looks lovely Lesley. Glad you're home safe and sound and I look forward to seeing more pics x

  3. Welcome Home! What a tiring trip however it sounds like the wedding was fantastic and your view from the B & B looks incredible! xx

  4. Great photos.
    Sounds like you need a new travel agent, I don't think that they would all have such lousy planning skills.

  5. Thanks was a tiring trip at first but it was fantastic. It is ice to be home though I have to say.

    Yes Alison, time for a new travel agent I think


I love to hear your thoughts.
