To Athlone again

Just back from Ireland, mission number one: attending my good friend's wedding, mission number two: self drive holiday to scenic Ireland's west coast.
After landed in Dublin on Friday evening, I hired a car and drove all the way to Athlone, relying on my good ole GPS. Reached my destination on time. So good to meet up with my friend and her family and relatives again.
The wedding reception was held at Athlone Springs Hotel. The menu consist of 5 courses :

Appetizer - Crispy Duck Salad with Cherry Tomatoes of Balsamic
Soup - Cream of vegetable soup with freshly baked bread
Passionfruit Sorbet
Main course-Duo of sea trout and lemon sole with pesto reduction & creamed emulsion
Desserts - Assorted treats

I must say the food was very delicious, nicely done to a high standard by chef Michael Talty.

Stay tune for my mission number two.......
