Day 133: Duck Salad and Swiss Cottage
Eating while abroad is always a treat. We stopped at a small cafe called the Ladyswell Cafe in Cashel for a lunch. Ron ordered the "Duck Salad." Look at this luscious pile of greens with a fresh grilled duck breast on top. Heavenly.
Later we took a healthy walk to see the Swiss Cottage nearby. Built in 1810 (and reconstructed several times) this cottage was part of the Romantic movement in which the wealthy pretended to play like the villagers. These cottages were luxurious in the extreme.
