Ashford Castle (7)

If you’ve never been to Ireland, you’ve probably never heard of the town of Cong, unless, of course, you are a film buff. Cong’s main claim to fame is that many of the outdoor scenes in John Wayne’s The Quiet Man were filmed there. There is even a gift shop dedicated to the film. The photo above is Ashford Castle, which is now a lovely hotel in Cong. Below is what I was more excited about than the movie: a ruined abbey with a cemetery.
