Starting things off right with a spot of

Breaking the airplane fast with an Irish breakfast buffet, I avoided the black pudding, eating blood is not my kind of delicacy.

Toastie and chips at Sixmilebridge. Yes that’s what they call grilled cheese sandwiches and yes that’s the name of the town.

I’m a chocolate addict, what can I say?

Sometimes it’s worth waiting even if you’re wicked hungry. This was one of those times I didn’t follow that advice.

I wish my kitchen set was this cute.

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I ordered chicken and mashed potatoes, but I never would have pictured this.

Muffins…I found them in Galway! If I were to hazard a guess this muffin had a lot more butter than any of mine.

The rest of the meal was pretty good too.

Ended the night (and the trip) with a last cup of Irish tea.
