Ireland (Ring of Kerry & Skellig) – part 3

On Tuesday, we set out for the ~100 mile drive of Ring of Kerry – absolutely striking – beautiful! This included Gap of Dunloe and Macgillicuddy’s Reeks – you don’t usually think of Ireland as being “mountainous” – but it is quite rugged and rolling! At one photo stop you could hold a lamb! I missed out though, because my camera battery died! I had my camera on all day – you just want to photograph everything!! We did buy a disposable for a backup at a later pit stop. The only part we didn’t like was the Skellig Experience

We took a Jaunting Car ride through Killarney National Park with a very chatty and knowledgable driver 🙂

For dinner, we went to Hannigan’s – I lucked out again with a good tortellini dish, and Dan struck out with whatever he got 🙂 We strolled around a bit checking out a few pubs looking for Irish music. We heard a bit that was just instrumental, a bit of ballads, and then ended up at the hotel bar and talked with the bartender there.
