8:30 AM - We had breakfast at our B&B and met an awesome American couple who live in Cape May, NJ and were following the same itinerary as us today, to include our overnight at Powerscourt Hotel. Small world! After breakfast we booked it to The Rock of Cashel, which was an important monastic site that became the first seat of an arch bishop in Ireland, marking the end of independent Abbot-lead monasteries in Ireland.

Charming Dublin is accessible to all kinds of travellers despite its archaic walkways, cobblestone streets and stone stairways. The city is mostly flat and committed to being disabled-friendly. Almost all shopping areas and tourist attractions are accessible. There is a lot of ease of access, for example most pavements have lowered kerbs making crossing over in a wheelchair, easy. Traffic lights give lots of time to cross and even have an audible tone for the visually challenged. Buses in Dublin are easy to board and de-board for wheelchair users, and even have signs saying how many disabled people they have helped till now. All buses stop if they see a person with a long cane, guide dog, wheelchair etc. Dublin also has an abundance of accessible accommodation to make your stay pleasant. Besides the city, however, it is the Irish people who will leave an impression on you. They are warm, friendly and always ready to help.Handy tips:• River Liffey is bang in the middle of Dublin, and makes for a great place for a wheelchair walk. And yes, it is very accessible• The coastline of Dublin Bay is accessible, so when you need to get out of the city, stroll here for some fresh air• Abbeyglen Castle and Cabra Castle are two medieval-themed castles turned into hotels that are disabled-friendly• The Sandemans New Europe – Free Walking Tours offers a completely wheelchair-accessible tour of North Side Dublin
2:00 PM - After Skellig Michael we drove 3.5 hours to Cashel for our next overnight stay. We checked in to our B&B and went to grab dinner and explore the town. It was too late in the day to catch "The Rock of Cashel" so that'll be our first stop in the AM, but Cashel itself had several old buildings and landmarks on it's own, so there was plenty to see. After dinner we called it an early night. Long day of boat riding, climbing, and driving!
