... s almost 9pm so cooking was out of the question. He advises me to check my email. A water main pipe has burst and the village of Cloughduv is out of water. The hot water is in a tank which is filled in the morning; but the shower is electric so the cold water runs through that; which explains why the boys could bath in the tub but Dad couldn't turn the shower on. It's been a big day and tomorrow will be an early one so we all go to bed hoping the water will be on by ...
... must have been short! Now I'm only 6 foot, bit taller than average in today's world, but I was hitting my head on the majority of door ways and single story ceilings. There was everything from murder holes and trap doors to dungeon caves, ramparts, battlements and curtain walls. My castle cherry has been popped. After countless stone steps, worn away over the years by endless footfalls, I reached the battlements and the famed Blarney Stone. To keep the story short and for ...
... the afternoon reorganising our backpacks, offloading some clothes and souveniers for Raylene and Mick to take back to Australia for us. We were very excited about the prospect of having lighter backpacks to lug aound the UK. Finally we would no longer have to carry half of Africa around with us. We ate some Chinese take away for dinner in our hotel room before calling it as an early night to bed.
We knew our luck couldn't hold out forever, and today is the day it turns. We depart the hotel for our circumnavigation of the Iveragh Peninsula on the drive known as the Ring of Kerry. It is cloudy and cold, and shortly after our first photo stop turns blustery and rainy. The bad news is that much of the spectacular scenery along this drive is obscured, but ...

Finally, Justin had me stand on his shoulders while he did a power squat to get me on the limb. Then he jumped up, and I helped pull him up on the limb. The picture didn't turn out that well but we had a good laugh, and I think the other couple were laughing even more than I was watching us struggle to get in this tree.

TravelPod Member ReviewsDromcloc House Bantry
We enjoyed tremendously our stay at Dromcloc House in Bantry. While it isn't the most modern or upscale, it has the feel of a well-loved home and the people treated us just like family; Dympna and Johnny, our hosts, and their daughter and grandson who were helping out with breakfasts.
One of our rooms was at the end of the house and had tremendous views of Bantry Bay both from the bedroom and the en suite. Our first evening we took a stroll down to the Bay.
Dromcloc House is on a working dairy farm but just a short drive from the town of Bantry. Signposted on the way is a Mass Rock and Holy Well which are worth exploring if you like that sort of thing.
We are already considering a stay there on our next trip to Ireland.
