If you've been to Ireland, you've probably flown into Shannon airport (the better to explore the west with, I say). It's a small, regional airport that is VERY easy to get in and out of - and very friendly people. It's in County Clare, Ireland.

I also highly recommend staying your first and/or last night at the Bunratty Castle Mews B&B - where we found the friendliest person in Ireland (no lie). More on that later.

But, while you're IN Bunratty, and perhaps looking for a family-friendly place to eat, might I suggest the Creamery Bar? Located across the street from Bunratty Castle and Durty Nellys, it's located in an old stone creamery (built in 1804). You can sidle up to the bar, or have a seat at a table. While you're at the table, look around at all the cool artifacts from when the Creamery was a creamery. I learned a lot!

But I digress, and maybe because my mom is a little embarrassed that we ate our food so quickly (BOTH Times we went there, in 2 days) that thoughts of food pictures went out the door. Yes, it is wonderful food, and I highly recommend the Seafood Chowder (we're aficionados). My dad, who doesn't like seafood, chose a chicken wrap, which was fresh and delicious.

Clean, friendly people, great atmosphere - and a wonderful bowl of Seafood Chowder (€6) with the prerequisite brown bread - all make for a wonderful meal.

Highly recommended!
