juki235This castle is an old castle in Slany, a private castle belonging to the Royal Irish nobility, and now it has become a museum with a restaurant in the basement. The entire castle is made of piles of stones. It is very strong and it is definitely a place worth visiting.
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.
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.
