"Wonderful evening at the opera"
we had the pleasure of attending the Blackwater Valley Opera Festival recently and had the loveliest evening ever in Ireland. The weather happened to be fabulous which added to the occasion but the whole evening was just one wonderful thing after the next. The castle at Lismore and the surrounding gardens are heavenly, the meal we had before the opera was absolutely delicious and the opera itself was very amusing and beautifully sung and presented. The guest were dressed in magnificent attire, the staff were so delightful and helpful and the entire evening ran like clock work. And when we left there were flares lighting up the gardens and paths out. All utterly sublime.
