Adare, Ireland. How beautiful it this? Adare, County Limerick, Ireland: Right out of a storybook, this celebrated village of low-slung Tudor cottages is adorned with ivied churches and a moated castle from the days when knighthood was in flower.
According to legend, Northern Ireland's Belfast Castle is safe as long as there is a (preferably white) cat residing there. This myth led to the creation of the "Cat Garden" on the slopes of Cave Hill, which boasts at least nine cats, visible & hidden, for visitors to discover.
