Caption

Ashford Castle. This fairy-tale castle rising over the shores of beautiful Lough Corrib, in the heart of Co. Galway's stony fields and rugged mountains; one of the most luxurious hotels in Ireland. It was built in 1860 by the Guinness family, and cost a million pounds then. Many people who are not aware of the fact have already seen some of its lovely surroundings, because it was here that John Ford's prize-winning film, "The Quiet Man", was made.

Excerpt from Message

We thought of you when we visited this Holy castle. Unfortunately we could not get reservations there – I guess the group was a little too late. I really have enjoyed every moment of the trip. Last night we stayed in ships and drove to Bundoran this morning. Will be here three days before going to Belfast. It is pouring rain today but it will give us a chance to rest – and catch up with neglected letter writing. My love to all. Evelyn
