Zoe Dawes's picture

The only sounds were the swish of the sledge runners, the panting of the dogs and the snapping of twigs as we hurtled through thick pine tree forests cushioned on either side by deep pillows of snow.  In front of us were six strong Husky dogs chosen for their speed and stamina, enthusiastically straining to keep up with a caravanserai of sturdy sledges.

One of the very first things we did, upon arriving in Ireland was to head to the Cliffs of Moher. Less than two hours from Shannon Airport, we rested for a bit at one of our favorite B&Bs, Dubhlinn House, for a few hours. Not quite so jet-lagged, we made our way down Doolin's tiny, winding roads to the wharf.

Most cats are not very fond of car travel. Part of the reason is that by nature they are territorial and prefer to rule their kingdom, also known as your home. They have a routine; a schedule and they stick to it. Removing them from their comfort zone can be extremely stressful.

Foodie Finds: Avoca in Moll's Gap, Co. Kerry, Ireland

We didn't have any restaurant recommendations in Killarney, but had a great one for Moll's Gap, about a half-hour south-west of Killarney. And, it was halfway to our rental home, Pier Cottage, west of Sneem. So, we held out a little more for the Avoca gift shop and cafe, in Moll's Gap.
