    How I'd like to retire there!! The pubs let you bring your dog in with you, and now there's no smoking.
    When I was there, they were busy widening the roads. We were told that it was because of the influx of Germans who bought second homes there and wanted to drive their big ol' cars.
    We had an incident on the road; a VW ran us off the side and busted up the tire. We asked our B&B lady where we could get a replacement spare. She said, "Take it round the gas station. Perhaps they can tap it out." The wheel had a huge gash, so we ended up at a junk yard for a replacement. The guy at the yard said, "Perhaps you could get a leprechaun to tap that out." We asked where we might find a leprechaun and he replied, "Drink about a dozen Guinness and you'll see one for sure!"
    Great time!

      ...which we noticed while on a ferry, so the car hobbled off and we found the nearest garage where a guy came out who was so totally covered in oil that he must have been bathing in it, or maybe prospecting for it.
