I mentioned in my last post that we stopped at a fudge shop in town and got some wonderful homemade fudge. I do not remember the name of it, but if you go to Doolin, the town is so small, it won't be hard to find. Here is a link to a video that I found. It shows a lot of pictures from the town including the fudge shop. It really captures the essence of the little town. WATCH IT HERE.
That night for dinner we ate at a place called Cullinan's. It is actually a restaurant that is part of a little hotel. It came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. Most everyone in our party got the Early Bird menu (you would see this a lot of there. Pre-set menus with multiple course choices at a great value.) They mostly had seafood and steaks. That is what we usually got at dinner. I, however, was about mussel'd out and had had enough seafood, that I went with a pasta. I by far made the right choice. Everyone made fun of me for getting Italian in Ireland, but it was soo good. I got a cannelloni pasta with a ratatouille Parmesan. Yumm!

After that we went to McGann's Pub. I have a movie quote that comes to mind every time I think of this night. "You have a baby...in a bar.." - Sweet Home Alabama. Not only did I have one of my babies in a bar, I had 2! They were welcomed with open arms and Sarah ended up being the hit of the night due to her Irish dancing showcase that she put on inside! She really commanded that bar crowd!
Next post will about The Ring of Kerry....Inch Beach....Dingle....and the arrival of our nanny to the vacation!
