Treated like Royalty

Today we were transported in time. We walked through the rooms of Bunratty Castle, treading the same steps as those who lived there hundreds of years ago. The halls were alive with history. We then had the unexpected pleasure of visiting the beach when we stopped in Lahinch for lunch.

Our next stop was the Cliffs of Moher. The view was absolutely breathtaking. I felt small, while also feeling like I was at the center of everything. It is a once in a lifetime experience to stand on the edge of everything looking at that vastness. Several members of the group said that the Cliffs were their favorite part of the trip so far, and I have to agree.

We finished the evening with a spectacular experience at Knappogue Castle. We were treated to a medieval dinner as lords and ladies, and received the utmost in service and entertainment. Dancing, singing, and laughter filled the room, and our very own Zach and Aubrey even presided over the feast as King and Queen!
