Travel Jaunts: St. Petersburg, FL and Ireland

One of my favorite things to do is travel. I haven’t done it as much in the past years, but since this summer when I went to Cuba I have the travel bug again!

Please enjoy my previous travel jaunts to St. Petersburg, Florida and Ireland.

Travel To Paradise…

Many of the Ireland pictures were taken at Sheen Falls Lodge located in Kenmare, Co. Kerry, Ireland.  Kerry is in the suburbs of Ireland.  Dublin, the big city, is approximately 3 1/2 hours away, or 296.4 km.  While I was there, I was told over and over again that I made the right choice in coming to the true rolling hills of Ireland.  I think I did, too.  Sheen Falls is a 5-star hotel and has going rates of $160 – 380 Euros per night depending upon the room, or suite you choose.  You can also include a 3-course dinner in your room price.  Or, have the bed-and-breakfast room rate.  In addition to The Falls, Sheen Falls has The Sun Lounge and a Cocktail Bar for you to enjoy.  You can check out the restaurants of this lovely hotel here.

I ate in The Falls Restaurant which boasts two AA Rosettes, similar to the Michelin stars rating system.  However, the Rosettes are specific to the UK and Europe.

I don’t think I would have seen the bull in the middle of the road at just past 8 am if I was in Dublin!

By comparison, St. Petersburg, FL was a very different experience.  The emphasis was on family fun when I was in the sunny southern state.  While in Ireland, I was with a good friend and it was strictly mature folks and upscale conversation. (Barney and Baby Bop, I love you but I know your place!)

In Florida, we enjoyed the countryside, the seashore and stayed away from themed-parks with huge mice in them…

Hope you enjoyed my travel jaunts!
