Today was our second and final day at Ashford Castle in Cong, Ireland The day provided the best weather yet – a real summer day with lots of sunshine and warm weather. There were a few sprinkles as predicted but they were few and far between. The day started with a boat cruise on Lough Corrib to view the Connemara Mountains and also a full view of the castle from the water. In the afternoon we set off for a car drive in the Irish countryside to visit the towns of Neale and Ballinrobe. Ballinrobe was home to our dinner stop, a restaurant named “Carneys”. The car ride there and back afford us the opportunity t0 view Irish sheep farms, local Abby’s and lots of open fields.
