Trip to Killarney

i’ve just come from from a night away in killarney. i went with my mom, sister, cousin and aunt. what a blast we had guys. it was so much fun. i was looking forward to this for months, we booked the trip last summer, we went to see an irish band play, called the fureys. we got the train there instead of driving, my sis usually drives, but she wanted to have a few drinks so she left the car at home. traveling by train was quite the ordeal. we did get assistance though which did make it easier. and of course mom and my sis and aunt were all delighted i was with them so that we could avail of the assistance, the joys of having someone disabled with you. we stayed in a 2 bedroomed apartment. oh it was beautiful. state of the art. there were about 8 beds in it, because there was a bed in the living room as well as 3 in each bedroom and then the couch went out into a bed as well. we had a fully fitted kitchen, with a washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, oven etc. we had two bathrooms, it was just amazing. when we got off the train a courtesy bus took us to our hotel, the apartments we stayed in were part of the hotel. we checked in, got our tickets for the fureys, then went to our apartment, we had some drinks, then my sis and my cousin went to get food for us. they came home and we cooked the food. or should i say mom and my aunt tried to cook it lol, they were drunk, but it turned out ok lol, it was edible anyway. after dinner we started to get ready for the evening. we went to the hotel at around 7 and doors opened to the event at 7:30. the concert was brilliant. they were amazing. its my second time to see them live. another of my aunts and one of her friends joined us for the concert. they played for 2 and a half hours. then we all went back to our apartment, we put on some music and had a bit of a karaoke sesh. only guess what? we had the neighbours from hell on one side of us. about an hour after we got back to our apartment, they came knocking on our door, telling us to be quiet, and turn off our music. my sister was really really drunk and ignored them, and turned the music back on. i kept telling her to turn it off but she kept saying no and then they came back a second time and they were like, you guys are keeping 8 people up. so then we did turn off the music, and we were just giggling and chatting, and i donno maybe we were loud, but i didnt think so, but they complained us to security and the security guy came up to us and threatened to throw us out if we kept jmaking noise. lol you cant take us anywhere. we cooked pizza and ate it and then went to bed, it must have been close to 3 AM when we got to bed. we were up again at 8, because we had to be out of the apartment by 10. we all had a quick shower and a cup of tea each and then got ready to leave. oh i forgot to say my mom was very drunk too last night and she ended up throwing up in the middle of the night, i couldnt really sleep then because i was worrying about her in case she’d vomit in her sleep so i tossed and turned all night and pretty much got no sleep at all. me and my sis were drinking cocktails last night, sex on the beach, and strawberry daquoires. i got mom one and she’s blaming that for making her sick. she didnt even remember walking to the apartment last night after we finished up in the bar. this morning when we left the apartment we took the bus into town and had breakfast and took a look around the killarney outlet store which is like a big shopping mall. i ended up buying a nice fleece in paco, its pink, my favourite colour. we got the train home at 2:30. so glad to be home now and i am just going to rest for the rest of the evening, but it was a fabulous weekend.

  1. I’m glad you had fun. My parents were big on the drink too, so it also made some drama andmade me feel scared and like I had to take care of them, especially since I was never a drinker. Good thing your mom and sis and everyone could pull it together to get out of there safely.
