A Fun Day In and Around Limerick

After a scenic ride down country roads, we were treated to tea and scones at Molanna Dairy Farm.

Following the dairy farm tea and tour we boarded the motor coach for    
our lunch stop in Adare.

In Adare we enjoyed lunch and a walk about town.

Adare still has several buildings with thatched roofs.
