I I am having coffee and cake in the home of Charlie Bell, our wonderful cab driver, who drove us all around Carrick Fergus and IslandMcGee, N. Ireland. Beautiful scenery, lovely people on this ancestry tour with my friend, Diane. Charlie’s Tsxis treated us so well—I give him high recommendations!

In the morning before heading back to Dublin, we took a private tour of the Troubles with Bobby Thompson and black cab taxis. Very interesting And very well done by Bobby. He was a great tour guide and helpful, friendly guy.

Dublin: We stayed at Academy Plaza hotel (great place and location—they fixed brakes on my chair).  Trinity College was excellent with fantastic guided tour, book of Kells and beautiful library. A 2 hour train ride took us to Belfast.

Belfast: we are at the Hampton Inn on Hope street—GREAT accessible room and very near light rail station. We saw city hall and Presbyterian Church in town. Easy to wheel. Belfast castle is on our schedule for tonight.
