We have been getting back to our “normal” Irish lives lately with no guests in town. Mostly sticking closer to town and enjoying our time here. Last weekend we rode our bikes to Cobh for a blues music festival. We took the ferry over.
There was a pretty great band out in the gazebo.
We had a very nice dinner there after the music and then had a nice ride home with a great sunset on the harbor.
This weekend we started off by going to the Cork City Football game. It was a close game and we ended up winning 2-1. Near the end of the game our goalie saved a penalty kick which was about to happen in this photo. It was great!
Saturday we got up and headed the round about way (~35mi) for Kinsale on our bikes
It was a nice day and we picked a pretty scenic route including Roberts Cove.
At the next beach a guy just gave us two tall boys because we were on our bikes. He had a case of them and was very persistent. We enjoyed them at the end of the ride.
We stayed the night in Kinsale, watched the all Ireland hurling replay final, and a Tottenham Hotspur game, had a great dinner and called it an early night. This morning we wandered around town and took some arty photos then rode the 16 miles back to Cork.
All in all, the perfect weekend…
