It was already teatime pubtime heck, it was Dinner by the time we rolled into Kilarney. Because it was so late,we skipped our usual stop at the pub for a B&B referral. Sally’s smartphone found the Kingfisher Lodge and we made it there with only one turn-around. Our rooms overlooked a yard with a koi pond and beautiful rose garden,lovely! We dropped our bags and walked downtown since we were very hungry! The town center was crowded with tourbus passengers, most seemed to be lodged in The Arbutus Hotel and The Tower Hotel. We walked the main street and watched as most of these tourists crowded into the small pubs and bistros. So, we opted for the larger Tower Hotel and O’Donohue’s Bar and Restaurant. Good choice! Sally had ham and cabbage which was nothing like the bland mush that usually comes to mind. I opted for salmon. This came out plated on a wooden plank and grilled to perfection, accompanied by champ and mushy peas. The men opted for “meatier” entrees. We All enjoyed an excellent meal! By now, Sally and I had decided that Irish Coffee is the perfect dessert! We didn’t have to leave our table for entertainment, as the local superstars took to the stage. This group believed in audience participation so the crowd was encouraged to sing along. We decided after a couple of sets to make our way back to Kingfisher Lodge. Our next stop was Murphy’s Pub next to the Arbutus Hotel for a parting pint. The place was packed with a much younger crowd and the volume of music was at a max! Two drinks later we were ready for the walk back to our rooms. Tomorrow the Ring of Kerry!
