I enjoyed my last night in Dublin at The Celt (the same place I was initiated with a bloke’s pint three years ago). Sorry, no such shenanigans this time, but there was another Grayson sighting.
Together we enjoyed a wee pint and some craic (fun).
I left Dublin behind and headed to Ardmore and my book event at The Cliff House Hotel. I set up in their library. While I didn’t read from The Keepers of Eire, I did have a chance to chat with people about the book and my Celtic heritage. Several people bought the book, including one lovely couple from County Cork mere minutes after he proposed in front of St. Declan’s Well.
Here is St. Declan’s Well. Can you find Grayson?
I also presented a signed copy of the book to Linda for the Cliff House Hotel for all their hospitality.
And finally, here are a couple of photos from sunset (around 9:45 p.m.) and moon rise (around 11:15 p.m.) from my room window at Duncrone B & B.
I have lined up my first book reading/signing event for my Ireland trip: The Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore, County Waterford, Ireland on Saturday, July 12, 2014. Time and details to be announced soon.
I am very excited to read and sign at this lovely hotel, steps from St.Declan’s Well (the location of the first murder in The Keepers of Éire).
I have several scenes in the book set in the hotel (fictionalized, of course) and St. Declan’s Well and Oratory.
The Cliff House Hotel serves a fantastic dinner menu and I look forward to enjoying the stunning view of Ardmore Bay from the dining room. I can almost taste the salmon and purple-topped broccoli now. Yum.
