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.

My last day in Ireland was definitely an emotional one. Even then, I decided to cover maximum places I could to make the most of the day. This is the day I understood what the coming days of solo traveling would look like! I walked up to the National Museum of Archaeology, National Gallery of Ireland, Kilmainham Gaol, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Guiness Brewery, and lastly went for shopping at Penneys and at Carrol’s Irish Gifts. I actually got lost that day when I was trying to reach Kilmainham Gaol. And that’s when I plugged in my earphones, started the Rick Steves Audio guide, and listened to Ireland’s history while I walked towards the Gaol (45 minutes walk), which closed down the minute I reached there! ???? I learned a lot about problem-solving, and managing my emotions in times of crisis that day!
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!
