Waterford Crystal Plant tour in Waterford, Ireland

Blog for April 3, 2014 from Cork, Ireland – Yesterday we went thru the local Cork area known as Shandon. There are two cathedrals, the butter museum and some interesting side streets here. Today we took a bus to Waterford which is two and a half hours away. So we got up very early and caught the 8:40 am bus. The ride in the morning was very nice going thru very picturesque towns and countryside . It was very foggy so that made it even more beautiful. While in Waterford we took the crystal factory tour and then went to the bishop’s house museum across the street. Afterwards we went through the city streets and stopped at a small cafe to rest and have some coffee. The owner was quite nice and we had a long conversation about our travels and his. We caught the 6 pm bus back to cork and again enjoyed the beautiful scenic route back with mountains, green pastures, sheep, horses, cows, lazy port town inlets and views of the ocean interspersed. Dinner was at a nice restaurant on Oliver Plunkett street. Tomorrow we go to the Dingle peninsula…

Peace and Love,
Norma and Woody
