Travelled: 113 kilometres from Hook (Wexford) to Cashel (Tipperary)
Visited: Wexford Coastal Path and the Rock of Cashel
Stayed: Rock of Cashel car-park €4.50 T+B, N52.52023, W07.88785
Budget: 9 days @ €97 per day
The wind picks up overnight and the Hymer rocks-n-rolls as it does. Still a good night sleep really, once you work out its not an earthquake. The Hook lighthouse sits on one end of the Wexford Coastal Walking Path, so we have coffee and fruit and set off for a walk.
A couple of hours later and a little hungry by now we return to the Hymer, have some toast (the Irish sliced bread is a little ordinary in our opinion). The Hymer is readied and we make for the ferry.
It’s an easy 90 minute drive back through Waterford and onto Cashel in County Tipperary.
Cashel or the Rock of Cashel is one of the top historical and archeological sites in Ireland. Originally known as St Patrick’s Rock, some form of fortress has existed here since the 4th century. It’s a busy place and the whole town is paid parking. Entry with site tour and chapel tour €9 pp (seniors).
Anyway Ireland has provided another day of contrasts. The weather remains warm in the sun, but the wind chilly. Happy to report our first day without a shower of rain during the day. Hence a dry day slips through to the keeper.
