10 day self-drive tour of Ireland : October 2009
Returning from Kilkenny to Waterford, hubby and I took a different route via New Ross, Wexford and crossing the Waterford Harbour on a car ferry ..
Amazing how front doors of houses in villages are literally right on the road!!! ..
The Irish Sea at Wexford ..
At that time, there were Tourist Information Centres everywhere (hopefully they still are) Having spoken to the very friendly lady in the one at Wexford Harbour we decided to take her advice and drive along the coastal road to Ballyhack to catch the ferry across the Waterford Harbour. We had to catch the last ferry of the day so we couldn’t
dilly and dally dawdle along the way. We made it in time .. that’s our car waiting in Ballyhock for the ferry to come from Passage East across the harbour …
Ballyhack is a small village with a 15th century Norman castle (a large tower house) is thought to have been built c.1450 by the Knights Hospitallers of St John ..
I’ve realised I’ve got so much more of Ireland to share and will endeavour to put up a few more posts before hubby and I go on a local holiday on Wednesday. We’ll be away for two and half weeks .. putting our toes in the sea and sand on the Kwa Natal North Coast and then for a few days in the mountains of the Drakensberg.
