Despite many trips to the old country we had not made it out of the city too much, so we grabbed a car and headed north. Naturally as a part of that trip we saw the usual suspects and had a jolly good timebut we also got up to see the Antrim coast. Stopping in Belfast and taking a taxi tour to give Jess some context for how messed up it was in our lifetime.
Then to nicer things, Antrim coast, Carrickfergus castle (I spell it differently each time), Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Giants Causeway, and back through Monasterboice on the way back to the Curragh.
A couple of day trips to the likes to Kilkenny Castle, Rock of Cashel and we were generally classy. With a good feed of culture in our bellies we were ready then to move onto Adam and Jenny’s Wedding.
