What’s up, guys? Welcome back to Vagabrothers. Right now we are feasting on fresh seafood, drinking craft beer in Northern Ireland. Stay tuned. Good morning. We are on our way out of Derry and going down the coastal causeway. We’re going to be going to some landmark sites in the next couple of days. Today we’ve got a fun day ahead of us. So let’s pray for the weather, and… we’re going to show you some beautiful sites in a bit. We just got to Gortmore, which is a viewpoint here on the Bishop’s Road. The Bishop’s Road is a really scenic piece of driving. It’s really cool. There’s this beautiful beach down here. I think it’s called a “firth” where a big river estuary comes out of the ocean. It’s wild. It’s so green here. Honestly, this image is not saturated all all. This is as green as it gets. Almost too green. All right. it’s freezing. Back in the car. It’s freezing. Retreat! Retreat! Go! Go! Guys, we were just driving, and we’ve come to a bit of an Irish road block. Take a look at this. Coming down this road right now and just found this massive beach. It’s super beautiful. The waves are rolling in. There’s a very, very calm breeze off the ocean, and there’s this cool Greco-Roman looking building up top on this hill. It looks like a mausoleum or something. We’re going to go check it out. The same guy, the Bishop from the Bishop’s Gate Road. The Bishop of Derry used to live here. Quite an interesting life, a lot of women. We’re going to go see the ruins of this building. This used to have a roof on it until recently. It’s kind of fallen in disrepair, but it looks good. It’s probably pretty cool for Instagram According to rumour, the bishop used to put flour outside the doors of his guest rooms so he could tell who was switching places during the night. Being a little naughty. I think if you put flour out right now, it might just get blown away because the roof is no longer on here. Supposedly, the bishop built this for his cousin, and we’ve had their relationship described as a “ditty” or a frivolity. This is pretty cool, you guys. Just on the other side of the temple, the temple is actually on this huge property called the Downhill Estate. It’s also got this big swath of forest with ferns and supposedly some waterfalls. Just stopped in for a quick cup of coffee, and apparently there are peacocks in the backyard. Alex, the peacock whisperer. Where are we off to, Brother? We’re going to have lunch at Harry’s Shack which is right down the street, and it’s supposed to be one of the better places to eat in this area, Food. I love food , and Ireland’s got good food. Let’s go munch. We are at Portstewart’s Strand. It’s a beautiful little beach. There’s a nice off shore wind. It’s a huge beach, Bro. Are you going to try to hop in the water and do some surfing? Ah… no. I’d rather hop into the restaurant and do some feeding. I’m Donal Dorhert, owner of Harry’s Shack here in Portstewart Strand in Portstewart, Northern Ireland. We grown 3 acres of our own vegetables and salads and everything in Donegal. We find this site right on beach, which for me is a life style restaurant. Misconceptions may be that it’s old-fashioned, stogy, roasts and beef and meat heavy and potato heavy. In reality we have some of the best produce in the world from Derry produce, butters, and milks. Fresh fish, of course, in this coast and the abundance of what we can catch, essential to what we do here is to put our best ingredients at the forefront, and sometimes do as little as possible to them. How do you say no to that? Know what I really love? I love when we get to come to a restaurant, and we don’t have to order anything. We just say…we’re in your hands. Take it away. You’re in safe hands. Right now we have a huge feast in front of us. We’re trying to document it, and it’s pretty funny because everyone here is looking at us and laughing. This is what hipsters look like eating lunch. Lunch is over. It’s raining outside, and we are going to go warm up with a little dram of whiskey. And not any whiskey, Bushmills, which is the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world. Doesn’t he kind of look like Bricktop from Snatch? I think it should be Vagabrothers since way back. So what do we have here? This is the full range of Bushmills distillery whiskey that we’re having on sale at the moment. Everything on the market That’s everything from our youngest, which is a five year Bourbon barrel aged blend, all the way up to the rare twenty one year second. If you guys make it to Northern Ireland, you must come to Bushmills and have one of these whiskey samplers. One of those things about Ireland is that the weather changes like that. And we’ve just driven back from Bushmills to our hotel at the Giants Causeway, and there’s a beautiful sunset. I love the way the light on this grass is like this little yellow tinge from the sunset. Everything blowing in the wind. It’s just so beautiful. All right, guys. That’s it for the day. We’re going to head to the hotel, but stay tuned. Tomorrow we’re heading to the Giants Causeway and the rest of this beautiful northern coastline.
