Oh, the PLACES I've Been!
Posting at The Tablescaper's weekly meme Oh, the PLACES I've been!
April 2001 - Ballybunion Ireland
This was the first time we ever rented our accommodations at Seaside Cottages for a week online.
When looking for rental vacation properties overseas it is best to google "self-catering".
We had trouble locating the cottage so John asked for directions in a shop, something he hates to do because the irish accents can be hard to understand, especially in Kerry!!
We knew the name of the woman who was renting it, Deirdre. When John pronounced it as Deer-dre (as on Coronation Street, a British TV show), he was quickly corrected as the shop owner stated that "in England they may say Deer-dre in Ireland we say Deer-dra". OK fine.
Anywho, we found it!
It was huge and more suited to a family. It had three bedrooms, a large kitchen and living room, master with en-suite and two other bedrooms and bathroom. The view out the kitchen window was towards the beach.
The beach and town were a three minute walk.
