... more hairy than I remember. Anyhoo, somewhere along the way I saw a sign for the Cliffs of Kerry. So I stopped to take a look. (I think this is on the Ireland side). I parked the car and saw the sign saying all visitors must report to reception. So being the responsible tourist I am, I reported in, just in case I fell off the cliff or something.

Next was a leisurely stroll around Killarney town, checking out the fantastic local wool products, for which the area is world famous, except maybe in Kalaru.
