From Cork to Killorglin and Glenbeigh Area

A travel blog entry by ktowndoyles


... history has been influenced by various cultures, among them the Danes and the Vikings who turned the seaport city into a thriving center of commerce. An independent county since 1922, Cork is today Ireland’s second largest city with a population of over 200,000. The region maintains a rich literary, archaeological, and cultural heritage and offers an art gallery, opera house, music school, theaters, and a museum. Among its ...

Adare, Killorglin Puck Festival

A travel blog entry by alandjo


... history. It was lovely to wander the streets and do a little shopping at the Adare Heritage Centre.
We arrived at the entrance of Killorglin (pronounced Clorg Lin) about 90 minutes later and saw parked vehicles lining the streets, and a river of vehicles on the street looking for parking spaces.

They asked a lot of questions. "What's your state football team? Why are you here? Are you friends?" Erin laughed out ...

Come To The Sea

A travel blog entry by hans-brenda


... where you can hear the constant surf. Sunsets are beautiful and you can shoot until it is almost pitch black.

We were disappointed not to get to the Skellig Rocks off Ballinskelligs Bay in Kerry. The sea was off limits for at least a week already and the 12 km trip would have been too dangerous for the landing at Skellig Michael, the largest of the 3 islands. If you get a chance, Google " Skellig Michael " and get a feel for what it was like in the 8th and 9th century ...
