Cycled 30 miles from Eyries to Kenmare. A very pleasant cycle along the northern coast of Beara, along rolling hills. Stopped for a little hike up to a stone circle, somehow missed the larger stone circle along this route. Arrived in Kenmare early enough to wash some laundry. Probably the highlight of the day ...
... can be found at the Aghadoe Church and Round Tower where it was incorporated into the wall of the old church, now a ruin.
The church was clearly built on an ancient pagan contemplative site, overlooking Lough Leine, the lake of learning. An old yew tree grows nearby.
After a day of searches and discoveries we grabbed our laundry, packed up and got ready for the adventure of the next day.
... huge disappointment, and did some souvenir and grocery shopping. We had dinner at home, delicious chicken stuffed with bacon and cheese, potato pancakes and green beans. As I type this I am enjoying a delicious slice of lemon cheesecake for dessert.
It doesn't seem like our time is almost up here and yet I am ready to be back home to the doodle kids. I'm not sure what we will get up to tomorrow, you'll just have to tune in tomorrow night and see. :)
... look for castle gates, go through them. Still, although I'd checked previous results the kerfuffle over getting to the start, and then the distraction of chatting to two people in 50 shirts, run directors from Tees barrage over visiting relatives, meant I forgot to check for competition. At the end, in fact, one bloke said "I picked you at the start" to come in first; professional short shorts, apparently. At any rate, I headed off with the chances who took the lead and seemed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Killarney Royal
Highlite of our tour
My wife and I were very impressed with the room,the meals and most of all the staff. The room was the largest and best appointed, of all on our tour of Ireland. The food was wonderful. The staff was most friendly and courteous.
stayed at the royal just before christmas and it was excellent,the rooms are so spacious and the bathroom amazing! we loved it and will certainly be going back.the staff were also great ,I cannot praise this hotel enough!
Great value luxury
Walked in off the street and got a very good deal (off-season). Great service - we were even given a key to the room before we had agreed to stay to check it out. Fabulous old-fashioned luxury, with none of that sickening deference that you get in some places. Very well kept family-run hotel, highly recommended.
Golf from heaven
Our golfing party of 8 were looked after royally (pardon the pun) at the hotel and the staff were both welcoming and efficient. My room was superb and the overall standard excellent. Well worth a visit.
At home away from home
We have stayed at the Royal on three seperate trips The rooms are great,the atmosphere is warm , the bar & dinning room offer good food & service and the hotel staff has little turnover, making you feel like part of the family.
The location is centeral but away from tourist noise. A gret place to stay.We are going back this year .

The Royal is exactly that. Great service and wonderful staff. Food is marvelous with a small private hotel feel. Highly recommended for stays of all types.
DJH, Pittsburgh, Pa
We have just come back from a weekend break at the Killarney Royal Hotel. We went as a group for my husbands 40th Birthday and from the moment we stepped into the hotel we were given a warm Irish welcome. As soon as we entered the reception we knew we had made the right choice, a warm cosy fire, friendly atmosphere and attentive staff. Beginning with an informative and much appreciated guided tour, we were then shown to our beautiful suites, very spacious, nicely decorated and even an automatic putter which went down well with the men.
Killarney Royal - Home away from home
The Killarney Royal has been home for our American golf group many times. We keep going back because of the outstanding staff and wonderful facilities. It is perfectly locating for touring in the Southwest. It's comfortable, homey and the staff is more friendly than any other place in VERY friendly Ireland. This stay is a must if you are anywhere near
Good Location but Below Average for the Price
Visited the Killarney Royal. The Decor was antiquated. I don't like hotel where you hear the floorboards crack everytime you walk on them. I paid 350 euros for two nights inclusive of dinner and breakfast. The dinner was typical of any hotel you would get in Ireland and the restuarant is nothing special with absolutely no atmosphere. Staff were friendly but I wasn't buying into this Four Star rating. Remember there is no parking facility. Overall average. I think I will try somewhere different next time.
Great part of our great vacation
The Hotel is very, very nice the rooms were great and the food and drink were great too, but the service and attitude of the staff was truly outstanding, perhaps the best I've ever encountered (and I've travelled an awful lot in many,many great hotels). I will go back
