Mmmm....that is one happy tourist". But too bad you can see his perfectly poured Guinness!!
So here is the pub...we had a great table right in that big front bay window so we could watch the world go by...Ron enjoyed his fish and chips and a Guinness, while Lenore and I each had the Ploughmans plate. We thought this would be a light bite because we had dinner scheduled in just 2.5 hours. We were so wrong...but so right! Wrong because it was so much food...basically one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. (And that deliciousness was what was so right!). It began with the most delicious bread, followed by a thick smearing of good Irish butter, then thick slices of corned beef, a slice or two of cheese, and a good dollop of carmelized onions, then bread and butter!! Boy was my tummy happy. In hindsight we should have shared this "light" meal...but remember this is Lenore and Kathy...we went all in on this sandwich!
But back to Bob and Vala...while Ron might have gotten good advice regarding the fish and chips...Lenore and I are less than thrilled by Vala's comments that she was freezing in Ireland! We packed our suitcases full of sweaters, and have been hot every single day! We can't really blame Vala...Ireland has just been basking in glorious weather! Who would ever have thought we would be complaining about the weather being too good!?
