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.

  1. Hi Patricia --

    I just wanted to thank you for your WONDERFUL book, and for all the kind comments you've shared over the last couple of weeks. Thanks also for sharing your trip to Ireland; what fun! I love the roof on this cottage; what fun it would be to live in a place like this...
