Ring of Kerry Experience

Yesterday we took an excursion around the Ring of Kerry. Here, mountains, valleys, lakes and sea blend into a beautiful landscape with sweeping sea views. Unfortunately it rained hard and constantly and very few pictures turned out.


We had most of the afternoon at leisure and I walked around the town and part of the National Park  including Killarney House and Gardens.


We started today with a  ride on a horse-drawn jaunting car with the local ‘Jarveys’ . We went through the National Park and it was a picturesque and enjoyable ride. I have pictures of the old Ross Castle and the gatekeeper’s house with its thatched roof.


Following the ride, we headed off to the Dingle Peninsula.  The weather was nice and the scenery was beautiful.  We stopped to see some prehistoric ‘beehive’ huts and ruins of an ancient fort.  People were surfing in the cold water wearing wet suits. En route to our country hotel on the River Shannon, we saw some cute thatched cottages.
