Exploring

We only had a few days in Northern Ireland and set off exploring right away.

Our first stop was Carrickfergus which has an amazing history in Ireland.

The entrance into the castle.

They found the bones of a dog buried there at the castle that probably looked like this. There was a very interesting and enthusiastic girl there giving information who, although she was German, had an Irish accent in English. She told us all sorts of things about the castle and showed us various weapons. She was a wealth of information.

In the town itself, along with a stock, was this painting on the side of a building.

Each night we returned to this hotel in Ballygally-love that name-and enjoyed resting.

We could sit in front of the fire in the bar if we wanted.

If you went through this door and up the stairs there was a ghost room.

The ghost was a lady who stayed in this room and either jumped or was pushed to her death. Never saw or heard her though.
