Ireland: The Kelly Homestead

Catie explores the home of her her third cousin (twice removed) – the famous Grace Kelly!  Then, checks out a piece of her family’s land followed by a family gathering at Nevin’s Pub.

“Our day in Newport started with a tour of Grace Kelly’s home. According to my mom’s research, Grace Kelly is our third cousin twice removed. When we arrived, we were greeted at the Kelly homestead by some local Grace Kelly experts who took us to the house and provided us with interesting facts about the home and the connection that Grace Kelly had to the area. In fact, Grace Kelly’s son, Prince Albert was just in Newport for a visit earlier in 2012. The house itself is roofless and more of a shell of a home than anything else. It was quite interesting, however, and we enjoyed connecting with our famous cousin in such a tangible way. For tourists coming to Newport who want to connect with Grace Kelly, I recommend they visit during the Grace Kelly Film Festival, which takes place at the end of September.”
