Journaling: We spent three days at Gorteen Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast, in a peaceful country setting outside the village of Tulla, in Clare, with hosts Michael and Mary Hoey. From our window, we watched birds nesting in the old stone shed built by Michaelís father. New calves and a colt grazed in the fields. We spent some lazy hours in their garden, watching birds and two crazy black-and-tan Jack Russells. Mary was a great cook (Her secret porridge ingredient turned out to be a few drops of Irish whiskey...and I liked it!) They talked with us each morning at breakfast, and when we left, Mary gave me her family recipe for Irish Soda bread. It felt almost like saying goodbye to family!
