6 Days in Ireland | Day 4

Our 4th day in Ireland was a busy one. We hoped to visit Blarney Castle, Birr Castle, the Rock of Cashell and Carbury Castle. Of course we had to start our day off right with a hearty breakfast. 

Black & white pudding is often served with breakfast in Ireland and looks a lot like little pucks on your plate. Black pudding in made from a type of blood sausage and white is much the same just minus the blood. They are an acquired taste for some. The jury is still out on this one.

After an amazing breakfast we hit the road and headed for Blarney Castle.

Our next stop was the Rock of Cashel, formally known as St. Patrick’s Rock and also known as Cashel of the Kings. Located on a hill above town, it is immediately noticeable and very easy to get to.

With us being less then an hours drive from Dublin we set off. We managed to find an inn in the heart of downtown Dublin, putting everything we wanted to see over the next day within walking distance. However, after a long day of driving we decided the only thing we wanted to see was dinner and a couple pints.
