Time well wasted

Slane Castle
People in Ireland are strange. They enjoy sunlight until around 10pm in the summer but it's nearly impossible to find food past 9 and most attractions close no later than 6 (many as early as 4:30!). So getting in all the sights was difficult. We would want to go all day, but places would be closed, and then we'd try to find something to eat, while it was still light outside mind you, and were turned away (but not without a Guiness). However, early closings were not always a bad thing. This particular castle closed fairly early, but there was no gate which allowed us to hang around as long as we wanted without another tourist in sight. The sky was very dramatic this day which works well for a castle and neighboring church/graveyard, so you'll see plenty of pictures from this place in the near future.
