Day 10
Excellent is my word for today!  We started with a walking tour of Kinsale with an excellent guide Barry.  The girls had a little shopping time here before heading off to Cobh.  Cobh has a large seaport with lots of cruise ships coming in.  It is also the port where the last 123 passengers boarded the Titanic.  Our main focus was climbing a huge hill; I have no idea why we did not get into a cab and save Linda's knees... but we wanted to see the St. Colmans Cathedral.  An excellent Cathedral in European style.  Worth the hike and excellent views from the top.  

Next highlight for the day is a stop at Old Midleton Distillery.
We had an excellent tour and capped it off with a tasting.

We both decided we rather liked Jameson!  Home base tonight is in Kilkenny and we are staying at Kilkenny Rivercourt.   Only one more day on our excellent Ireland tour.
