Another place we visited outside of Kilmore Quay was Johnstown Castle Gardens which is part of the Irish Agriculture Museum. The grounds were beautiful with paths aroung several lakes, paths through sculpture gardens, and a walled garden. I liked the towers by the lake and the plants around the lake. They had these gigantic leaves bigger than my head. I wish they had marked what they were.
I did one painting of the tower and the lake.
After having a pot of tea in the cafe and warming up a bit the sun came out and I painted part of the castle itself.
Of course we went to a pub there for music. We couldn't get a spot with a view of the musicians at Kehoe's Pub and Parlour, so I sketched some of the people at the bar instead.
