Ring of Kerry Weekend

A travel blog entry by akreyling


... took some pictures afterwards. We went to Torc Waterfall afterwards. It was cool. Some trees were knocked down in our path but it didn't stop the bunch of tourists that were there. Then we went to the Killarney National Park, our tour guide brought us on a walk to see the mountains and lakes through some paths, but we were only there for an hour or so. We then started our journey back to Cork, from there it was about an hour and a half ride. Everyone was exhausted, I took a ...

Jigs, Reels, and Ditties in Dingle

A travel blog entry by robin512

It's situated right on the beach, mountains are close behind it, the dining room is a comfortable place to eat and hang out, they have a TV in the cozy reading room if you really get that bored, and there's a small restaurant/pub 20 steps away. Up the street about a 5 minute walk Cloghane's little store is open from 9AM to 5PM. Being from a small town, I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when I walked into the store this ...

Fairy Forts and Bagpipes

A travel blog entry by rebeccabrent


... thought it would be bad luck to disturb them—lucky for us.

We stopped along the road at a beautiful overlook and pulled out our salad plates. It was so cold and windy that we decided to have our picnic lunch in the car, but it was no hardship with that kind of view.

The highlight of the loop trail for us was the Great Blasket Centre, which details the lives and writings of the inhabitants of the Blasket Islands, visible from the Centre. The Centre itself is ...
