Northern Ireland – completing the loop

Inch Abbey Downpatrick Northern IrelandThis entry includes approximately 24 hours of time over two days. We left our temporary home in the Sperrin Mountains, heading southeast generally. We ended up driving through much more rain than probably anyone expected. We were in a “can’t see through the windshield – it’s raining so hard” storm for a few minutes. Kellie may have a video.  We stopped in Armagh, site of a 300 year old public library and followed some more sights along the St. Patrick Trail. We slept at a B&B in the countryside, then returned to Belfast just just a brief tour through more murals. The next post will either be from Dublin–our current location in Hungary.
