Despite an extremely comfortable bed I am awake fairly sharp. I am in no real rush this morning and the heavy rain outside does not entice me to go out immediately.
There is only one thing to do
Go for a full Irish breakfast
Despite the weather, the short drive to the west coast town of Kilrush is pleasant enough and we arrive on the dot of 12 in the pub / B&B which will be our base for the next couple of nights.
The Guinness is smooth and tasty. Both pints in fact.
Time to go for a walk in the drizzle and wind
After which a nice cup of tea and scone are more than welcome
Diner is at another pub round the corner
