A Journal, with Pictures


by on Aug.29, 2013, under Happenings

On Wednesday the plan was to stop on our way to Lahinch and play Doonbeg. It was raining and the wind was blowing so we decided to take the day off from golf. We drove to Lahinch and checked into the Lahinch lodge which is almost within walking distance of the golf course. We did some touring and visited the local woolen shop, purchased some sweaters. We have lunch, then a little relaxation, then dinner at a very popular seafood restaurant along the coast. We are ready for golf on Thursday. Over the next three days we enjoy the beautiful Lahinch golf course, which is a classic Irish links course. Every hole is unique and challenging. Adding to the charm is a mixture of sun, clouds, wind and rain usually occurring during the same round. In the evenings we dine at a different restaurant and then have a night cap at the 19th hole a local pub with music and plenty happening. Unfortunately, Paul has a family medical emergency and has to leave after the first day of golf in Lahinch. The rest of us finish the trip, enjoying the golf and Ireland. Sunday its up early for the one hour drive to Shannon, then our flight on to Newark and then my flight to Cincinnati. It turns out to be a long day for me due to a flight delay in Newark, but as always great to get home. It was a great trip with golf on two great courses, lots of laughs with fun people and a chance to soak up the unique Irish countryside and charm of the people.
