The sun was shining in Ireland as we visited the incredibly restored 15th century Bunratty Castle. Roaming the tight stairs to the Earl's quarters, the dungeon, the large halls and all the nooks and crannies was a very memorable experience. The history of all the places we are visiting has had a great impact on each of us. It is one thing to read about it, another to see it. And no matter how many pictures we take, it hasn't been able to capture the fullness of these sights and experiences.
