On Saturday me and some friends did the Ring of Kerry bus tour. We started at 8:30 in the morning at the bus station in Cork. On our way to the first stop, the bus driver told us a little history about Cork, it was really interesting. The following destinations were planned: Killarney, Killerglin, Glenbeigh, Caherciveen, Caherdaniel, Sneem, Kenmare, Molls Cap and Killarney National Park. The trip was one of the greatest experiences here in Ireland. I saw the Atlantic Ocean for the first time, and it was really different to the sea I knew before. The national park and the water falls were also very breathtaking. I can highly recommend going on a tour with the Paddywagon.
After the Ring of Kerry tour, we met up with some of our colleagues in the Old Oak. I thought the Old Oak is a tiny pub with only one room, but I was totally wrong. The pub is huge and there’re several open rooms where you can have a drink or party. All in all, it was really fun and a great night. I think the best thing about that night was, that you could have a little chat with people who are from Ireland.
On Sunday our whole group went to Midleton for the Jameson Experience. We were shown how to make the famous Jameson Whiskey. It was really interesting to see how long it takes to create the whiskey before you can drink the final product. The Jameson Experience is an absolute recommendation for all whiskey lovers.
And now back to work…
In the past days Lara and I have written blogposts again. We also produced brochures for the weekly activities of the company – our colleagues were really enthusiastic about the work. We also visited the town Crosshaven, which is 30 mins. by bus from Cork. Unfortunately, it’s not summer so the place was like a ghost town. The houses seemed uninhabited and crows were jumping around everywhere. It was a pity, because the place must be beautiful in summer, when the sky is blue, and the sun is shining.
