Where to start... After a gusty night in Galway, where we were forbidden to leave our hotel due to high winds and rain, we got blown (literally) into Craughwell train station the next stormy morning and were picked up by Pete the Irishman. Stones man, fashion designer, king of his own castle and our next host via AirBnB, he informed us we'd have to stay an extra night at the castle free of charge (oh nooo, how terribleeee) because the flooding from Storm Desmond was making access to and from the area dangerous and nearly impossible. So we started the second part of our Irish adventure marooned in a castle, loving every second of it.
Pete and his partner Eva took us in like family and filled our bellies with good food and our ears with beautiful stories. The castle has so much character and history, it's impossible not to feel apart of it. To see the place for yourself, find Pete on AirBnB Here! We explored the surrounding area the next day when the sun came out and I found all the animals a Maya could want. We might move there...eventually. Our time was so special and unique, I cannot wait to return, possibly during the dryer season?
