I was reading a book by Nora Roberts called Shadow Spell that mentioned Ashford Castle and how splendid it is. I looked it up online and it says that this castle dates back to 1228 can you imagine that. It has 350 acres on the shores of Lough Corrib. It has 83 spectacular rooms, suites and a Lakeside Cottage, lots of activities with the Irish hospitality. It has been fully restored to its former splendor and it is home to Ireland's first School of Falconry.

I pick up on little tidbits when I read too and do additional research. Sometimes the research is fruitful. Sometimes I'm surprised to find that the writer made the whole thing up and the place doesn't exist! What a blessing to have such a vivid imagination.
