When we arrived at Kao Xi Farm, the host warmly welcomed us.
Make a bread with wheat flour, milk, see how the shepherd dog shepherds, learn to dance Irish dance, beat the tambourine, hug the lamb, and enjoy the bread and mutton dinner at the table, listening to Bower and The youngster sang and played the accordion, and the atmosphere of joy, if it came to the warm family.
Irish is not only enthusiastic, but also versatile and admirable.
I am reluctant to leave, it is a wonderful time to be unforgettable. Traveling a lot of times is to integrate into the real life in the local area. vivilan
Do brown bread, learn to dance Irish dance, play Baoslan drums, milk cows, cute and clean piglets, see how to drive the flocks... For me, too many "first time "It was all experienced at the Causey Farm." This 300-acre private farm has been inherited by the Murtagh family for over a thousand years.
When you get off the bus, you will be warmly welcomed by the farm owner, a dozen people, plus a few shepherds, and you will be super warm in the drizzle. The flour and stainless steel pots on the long table were ready, and the hostess asked each of us to pick a flower apron, and then began to make Brown bread with her demonstration.
The dough needs to take more time to bake in the oven. You don't have to sit and wait. The handsome guy on the farm, Peter, took us to the barn and took everyone in a circle and jumped up to the cheerful Ireland. dance. After dancing, Peter greeted us to sit on a bench and play a kind of goatskin drum in Ireland - Bao Silan drum, the atmosphere of relaxation and exultation is an indelible memory.
Holding piglets, milking, seeing how the shepherd dog controls the flock... and the hostess is ready to eat at the same time, except for the freshly baked bread and small potatoes that have just been baked. The stewed beef, mutton and vegetables, together with the jam from the farm, is a simple and delicious meal. Dominic After traveling through Ireland, Haruki Murakami wrote: "If our language is whiskey, it doesn't need to be so troublesome. As long as I silently hand out the wine glass, you can pass it quietly into the throat. It is very simple, very close and very accurate. "
chasing the roots of the source, Ireland is the birthplace of whiskey, but unfortunately because of the historical opportunity, the Irish whiskey is not as famous as the next Scotch whisky. But when it comes to the softness of the taste and the richness of the scent, it is better to stick to the triple distilled Irish whiskey.
This whiskey distillery next door to Slane Castle has a tour of the tour experience. The handsome guide James leads us into the world of Irish whiskey, from a barley to a drop in our nose and mouth. The fragrant amber liquid is a long and magical journey.
The final part is of course wine tasting. Compared to Scotch whisky, Irish whisky tastes soft and smooth, and has a good flavor of caramel, dried fruit, almonds, apples and vanilla, although it is a spirit. But even the little girl in the same trade is happy to taste a few more. Dominic
I have seen too many castles in Ireland, but the favorite for me is Slane Castle, which is open between the castle gate of the Irish aristocratic Conyngham family and the meandering River Bonn. Natural lawn with slopes.
The owner of the castle, Count Henry, must be the most fanatical and happiest super rock fan. Since 1981, he has hosted N concerts on this lawn, including a bunch of rock and pop music. The name of the star-studded in history - U2, Rolling Stone, Gun Flower, Red Pepper, Queen, David Bowie, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Santana, Springsteen, REM, Oasis, Bon Jovi...
The regulars here are great U2 bands. In 1984 U2 lived in the castle for half a year and wrote their album "Unforgettable Flames". Coincidentally, seven years later, Slane Castle really lost a fire, but the fire would not cause damage to the main body of the stone castle. It was reopened after the restoration was completed in 2001.
The castle is home to furniture, furnishings and old photographs that have existed for centuries, but my favorite is the windows, the lush hills outside the window are not at the end, just like hanging a landscape painting. When the concert is held on the grass outside the castle every year, every window facing the stage is probably the perfect place to break the head. Dominic
