Timoleague Friary Ruins in Ireland

After the spectacular Galley Head our next stop in Cork was the Timoleague Friary Ruins, yet another structure built of stones in Ireland.

The name of the brewery comes from the fact that Ireland is located at 8° West Longitude, 8° also being the perfect serving temperature for the beer. They don’t say whether that’s °F or °C, and that sounds either too warm or too cold. We had their 8° Hurricane IPA in Dublin and it was one of our faves.Howling Gale Irish Pale Ale beer tap in a pub in Timoleague, IrelandI ended up having a James J. Murphy’s beer in honour of our new Aussie-Irish friend of the same name that we had met in Roundstone.A James J. Murphy's beer in Monk's Lane Pub in Timoleague, Ireland
