We can already do the electric and silent parts. And so we whisper towards our destination, Limerick, taking in another three essential Irish sights on the way. The Dunbrody Famine Ship in New Ross is a tourist attraction in southeast Ireland. We paid a visit to the reproduction of the three-masted emigrant ship, dating from 1840. Modern zero emission transport meets recent history zero emission transport.
The Rock of Cashel is regarded as an emblem of the Republic of Ireland. The 65-metre-tall tower is a unique monument. It has been revered as the home of faeries and ghosts since ancient times. It was the seat of the Kings of Munster from the 4th century, while St Patrick made it the heart of his bishopric in the 5th century.
When we arrived in Limerick, we visited the final highlight of our incredible road trip: King John’s Castle. This imposing 13th century castle is built on the site of a Viking fortress dating from 922, which was then converted into a castle in 1200 by order of King John. At that time King John, nicknamed John Lackland, was King of England, Lord of Ireland, Duke of Normandy and Aquitaine and Count of Anjou. What a mouthful!
