As a second part to our trip to Glendalough, we visited the fancy Russborough (pronounced russ-burrow) house. Although the to die for libraries and secret doors were awesome, I fell in love with the ornate ceilings. It's just not something you really see anymore. After our tour of the house, we saw the grounds. A deceivingly small hedge maze kept us occupied for a while, and then we got to the best part: the sheep herder! He showed us how it all works, and then I GOT TO HOLD A BABY! Definitely on the list of highlights of my life so far. We ended the trip with a *fabulous* picture with our bus driver, D.
