The rain stopped and we had a most beautiful sunset on the Kenmare coast!
The Ring of Kerry is a drive around the Iveragh Penninsula- with dramatic cliffs, beautiful coastline, and lots of ruins! Takes about 6 hours to drive it, if you stop. It connects with the Ring of Skellig which takes you further west. Here are the Cliffs of Skellig (also known as the Cliffs of Kerry). Not as tall as the Cliffs of Moher (see Galway), but every bit as beautiful!
|From the Cliffs of Skellig, you can see the Skellig Islands- a monestary was built there in Medieval times, with rough-hewn stone steps to the top. It was included in the latest Star Wars movie.|
|The countryside is really beautiful in Ireland|

|Sheep are everywhere!|
|Kenmare- main street|
|Ruined castles are everywhere!|
One of the sights of the Ring of Kerry is the Muckross house- an old manor- we toured it- it was worth it!
No photos were allowed inside the Muckross house, but I was able to snap a couple, unnoticed!
The Kerry National Park is worth a days visit, with the waterfalls and views- beautiful!
