I was obviously sad to leave the conveniences of Dromoland, but there was still much of Ireland on our agenda. We spent the entire next day driving the Ring of Kerry. I’m going to do this post mostly in pictures because this entire day was all about the amazing views, but a few of the highlights include: the bakery in Killorglin, the Kerry Bog Village and Red Fox Inn in Glenbeigh (where we tried the alleged “Best Irish Coffee in the World” and found our next breed of dog – the Irish Wolfhound), the Skellig Islands, Staigue Fort, Kenmare and finally Moll’s Gap. We ran out of daylight before we ran out of things to see.
That evening we stayed in Killarney which was a surprisingly fun and very young town. We stayed at a nice and cute, centrally located B&B, Abbey Lodge. We got a great dinner and then did some pub hopping to see some local live Irish music sessions. It was a Friday night so lots of people were out and about and we really enjoyed exploring the area. The Husband and I both agreed that Killarney is definitely on the list for the next trip.
