Work starts. King John's Castle, the Cliffs of Moher

   Everybody was eager to immediately interact with people in Limerick (Luimneach, in Irish). Our first stop was the King John's Castle, and then a quick tour of the city centre.  Luckily, rain stopped by the time we got to the Castle. It is an impressive place that had a significant role in the history of the region and of the country. Lots of rooms to go to, lots of steps. We enjoyed it very much. 

   On Sunday, after a nice hot breakfast cooked by Christine and Darren, we started our day with talks about our classes.  After that we were ready to go to the famous Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland's national attractions.  We shared this trip with three students from University of St. Thomas in Texas--led by Isabel Torras. The cliffs reputation is unquestionable.  Hundreds of tourists braving the persistent rain and sunny patches.

After that, lunch and a brief visit to Bunratty Castle (more steps to climb).
