... 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.

... with a carved Francis of Assisi on one of the walls. Also an enormous castle ruin - amazing how tall some of these ruins are. On the recommendation of a fellow traveller at breakfast decided to stay on the Dingle Peninsular for the night. Quite mountainous and a very pretty village right on the coast.
