SUNDAY’S SPECIAL SPOT – IRELAND

HAPPY ST PATRICK’S DAY!! Although I may not be Irish I can still appreciate a fun holiday. As a tribute, today’s photo is rather fitting: Bunratty Castle and Durty Nelly’s Pub in Ireland.

Durty Nelly's


Bunratty Castle, a National Monument in Ireland, is located in the village of Bunratty, which was originally the site of a Viking trading camp circa 970 A.D. Durty Nelly’s Pub dates back to 1620 A.D. and has been in operation since. It is one of Ireland’s most famous pubs. So much so that there is even a location in Halifax, NS, Canada – it was designed and built in Ireland and finally shipped over the ocean.

The photo is from Flickr and was taken and is owned by Geoffrey Watson (Amosthewonderpig).
