While driving in the Republic of Ireland tracing the footsteps of the John Wayne/Maureen O'Hara film, "The Quiet Man", I stopped at the town where most of the action took place, Cong. It is an incredibly quaint town and not much changed from the early 1950's, when the film was shot. After having driven over 150 miles scouting all the locations of the film, some being quite a drive from the town itself, I was very hungry. Coming into town from the west, I crossed over the bridge over the River Cong into town and right before me was Molly Brown's. I decided to stop to eat there, sitting beautifully among the mountains of the Connemaera to the west and right on the river. I ordered some smoked salmon, which had just been taken from the river that day, along with some homemade bread and soup. The food was delicious and the restaurant itself was charming and spotless, even down to the restrooms on the second floor. The women working there were wonderful and they urged me, before I left, to take a look at their homemade pies on the counter. They were beautiful pies and I just ha to have some, so I ordered a piece of cheesecake and a piece of apple pie - OUTSTANDING! What a great meal I had in such beautiful surroundings (the beautiful countryside just gets more and more beautiful as you go west - or east for that matter), and it fortified me well for the hair-raising (for right-side drivers anyway) - but fun - car ride back to Galway.
