Well, you all received my email that I sent when I was in Westport, so I'll make this brief. After Omey Island we stopped at Kylemore...just to take a picture...lovely place for us!
We arrived in Westport for our 2 night stay at Linden Hall. The young owners of this B&B (the only one in town that took vouchers) were just absolutely fun, fun, fun! Steve is putting our picture on his web site...he's just so nice! I definitely recommend this B&B. We had a lovely room (1 flight up) with a comfortable double bed, and large bay window overlooking the street.
My choices for restaurants were limited and PLEASE NOTE....many that were recommended on here (Lemon Peel, etc) were closed during this time of year. But we had a lovely lunches Joe Cosey's (very reasonable) and and The Helm...if in town, drive to this location or take a taxi...it's a long walk to the quay and a steep hill. Also had a very nice dinner at an Italian restaurant (Mediterraneo) down a narrow street across from Matt Malloy's.
Matt Malloys had trad music @ 9:30 every night, but arrive around 8:30ish to get a seat.
There's an internet cafe (Gavin's Video) that charged 1 euro for each 10 minutes, or 1 hour for 5 euro.
And quess what...got my KERRY GROUP jersey at Elvery's there...and it was on sale from 55 Euro to 35 euro. Only thing is it was the "blue" one and I really wanted the "green" to where on St.Paddy's day here...more on that later...Oooow, more suspense! I just love it because it has my name in Gaelic on the back...so awesome!
Only thing is it's the "blue" one and I really wanted the "green" to wear on St. Paddy's day here. Elvery's called around but only Tralee had the green. But, more on that later, Oooow, more suspense! Steve at Linden Hall was so sweet to offer having Tralee Elvery's send it to the Westport one & then he would pick it up and post it to me! Such a wonderful fellow!
We left Westport on 2/15 for our stay in Kinsale...and what a lovely drive that was. More on this in a seperate post.
