    Been having Wi-Fi trouble, but finally was able to log on. Spent yesterday in the city and did the Guinness tour. Tried a couple of their craft beers as well as an obligatory pint of stout. Not sure if the IPA and Rye Pale Ale will be distributed in U.S. or the frozen North, but would recommend trying both of you find them. Nice beers. Stopped by Jameson for samples after leaving St. James Gate. Here's a couple of pics I was able to email from my phone before the connection screwed up. Got a bunch of pics and hoping to have better internet as we travel starting today.

    Guiness and Jameson in one day sounds pretty fine to me.

    It has been great so far, and Dublin was just the warm up. That Jameson sure went down nice after 9 months without whiskey.
    We're in county Cavan now staying with my wife's cousin and her family, and they own a pub:)

    A couple pics at Howth harbour on the Irish Sea. Not A the Gaelic phrase on the stern of the boat. I know someone will figure it out. 0522191749_Film3.jpg 0419192333_Film3.jpg

    A couple of nice beers at St. James Gate. Open Gate IPA and Rye Pale Ale. Also. a pub in Killiebegs Co Donegal where we stopped for a hot whiskey to warm up on a cold and wet day.

    I’m assuming the darker one is the rye pale; looks awesome!

    Dead batteries in all of our electronics and only one AC adapter. Finally my turn. Arrived in Galway yesterday evening. Visited the grave of Wm. Butler Yeats just North of Sligo town on the way through and then Kylemore Abbey. Pics.later. Below is a shot of the beach where we stayed Sunday & Monday, followed by a couple taken at the site o the tallest cliffs in Europe. Looking forward to drinking some local beers today, including one called Galway Hooked :)
