Titanic Museum Belfast
This is a memorial building to those who lost their lives when the Titanic sank. It’s also a tribute to those who built the largest cruise liner of the time. The building is on the exact site where the ship was built on May 31, 1911 in Belfast. Unlike most tourist traps, this memorial felt like the real deal. The interactive displays made you feel like you were a member of the construction team or one of the millions who mourned this tremendous loss. This experience was an emotional reminder.
This Could Be Our New Summer Home
Kylemore Castle was built in 1868 as a private home for the family of Mitchell Henry, a wealthy doctor from London whose family was involved in textile manufacturing in Manchester, England. The Castle is located in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland. The reason why we just can’t take it seriously is because there are only four bathrooms in the 40,000 square foot Castle.That doesn’t go well with 33 bedrooms. We pass.
Sticks And Stones
We visited the largest cemetery of megalithic tombs in Ireland today. It is also among the country’s oldest with monuments from 5,000 years ago. Archaeologists have recorded over 60 tombs of which 30 are visible. It’s located in Carrowmore, Sligo.
Today was a day filled with rainbows on our tour. It just made everyone so happy. Eliot took magnificent photos of many of them. These are two of his favorites.
