Subject: Re: Ireland
Hello Mary,

on the south west coast of Ireland are something like three fingers. One is the famous Ring of Kerry - with a wonderful beach on the north side, but a lot of traffic (busses and horse carts - really!). Second famous one - Dingle - is nice and has the chance of a boat tour with dolphins. Third one - Beara - I like most, but is quite quiet - calm, but wonderful landscape.

Concerning the pubs you should always ask the locals. If you'd stay for some days in the area you could find out the pubs where the locals go - sometimes with spontaneous music and in Ireland normally something for the whole family, not only for old men (like it is sometimes in Germany where I live).
