Dublin to Rosslare & Ladys Island

After checking out of the Metro Hotel Dublin ( worth a visit) we collected our hire car and took off to our first overnight stay at Rosslare .Takning the motorway was the quickest and had to pass thru a toll road (we decided NOT to take the coastal road as it wasn,t very scenic) On arrival the B&B was deserted (the lady (Moira) was at the hospital enjoying the birth of her new grandaughter Kate) She made us a lovely cuppa and met her other “inmates” who were holidaying there and we had a good laugh! We venture out and paid a visit to Ladys Island a gathering place for pilgrims from around the world to celebrate their religion Catholicism,after inspecting all the religious artefacts,icon,buildings and sadly very neglected graveyard  (I was never once struck by lightening!) we headed back to our digs Night time and we visited the First Pub on Irish Soil namely The Kilrane Inn) and met some great characters in there.Annie had her usual feed of chicken ,service was really good too The landylady of the B&B  was great and made us feel very welcome finishing our stint here by making us a brilliant Irish cooked breakfast.Tomorrow we start the scenic West Coast Route

Rosslare is a Ferry based village and has ships going to Cherbourg and Wales and will transport vehicles.On the travel here it was very noticeable on the large number of road side sales for Strawberries!!.Not far from Ladys Island on the coast is a concrete pier that we attempted to walk along,the tide was out,there wasTONS of seaweed rotting and the sum was drying it out BUT the obnoxious smell (not pollution) was too much for me !! Annie has not got a sense of smell so she was saved from this foul smelling natural event !!!
