|Subject: Re: Cornwall and S. Ireland|
We visited Cornwall and Southern Ireland 3 years ago. In Cornwall I
particularly loved St. Ives, which is a pretty coastal village. It also
has a branch of the Tate Gallery in town, a lovely building overlooking
the sea. There are lots of lovely B&B's there as well.
A must see is the Minack Theatre, very close to Land's End. It is a Roman outdoor theatre built on the edge of a cliff. It was built single-handedly by this fabulous old woman, buy hand, and is open to the public. They hold actual performances during the summer months, and it was very impressive. They have a web site at http://www.minack.com/minack.
I too loved Clovelly, even though it was touristy. Mousehead was also a lovely town, and a must is the visit to Mount Michael, the castle on the island like Mont t. Michel in France.
As for Southern Ireland there are lots of great places, as have been mentioned, like Dingle etc. I was particularly glad we called into Foynes, and visited the Flying Boat Museum there. Maureen O'Hara the actress is the patron, as her husband used to fly them.
