This story started in the previous post, so you may want to go there and see the outside of the Ahernes Seafood Resaurant and Accommodations. Just a suggestion. Okay, quick before Blogger changes its mind. This is one of the bedrooms at the Ahernes. Each room is different and each has an antique armoire. I peeked in all the empty rooms to check them out. Are you surprised? I didn't think so! No that is not me looking lovely in my robe, these pix are from their website.
Here is the lounge. Have you ever seen a cozier room? It is a scrumptious yellow that you see a lot in Ireland. It is just made for having a cup of coffee and reading a good book and that is just what I did. Several times in fact. At night they had a peat fire going even though it was August. Got to get that Irish ambiance.This lighthouse is on the way to the beach. The beach is a "blue flag beach" which in Ireland means it is a clean, safe beach, but I am sure there is more to it than that :).

Blue door from same source. Does it get any more charming than this?
This is an ancient church with a wonderful old graveyard to wonder thru. The town is a medieval town from the 13th century and part of the wall which surrounded it is still in place.
Take a gander at the width of this street and it is a two way street. They have recently built a by pass road so that only local traffic goes thru town.
This is the center of town and the old tower where "punishments" were meted out. Now it is a lovely place to decorate with hanging planters.
This makes the 2 way street look absolutely wide. I think I walked up this street one day, just to see where I would end up. Remember Bob was at work, so I was on my own to explore. I love to explore on my own and then report back as to what I found.
This is all for now. Tomorrow I may show some pix of where I stayed the second time I went to Youghal when the Ahernes was all full up :).
Happy St Patrick's Day from a mostly French girl ( girl may be pushing it just a bit) and her 100% Portuguese husband .
