    April 24 in Ireland

    Wir sind an unsere Unterkunft in Killarney angekommen. Von den Besitzer sind wir direkt auf deutsch begrüßt worden. Damit hatten wir nicht gerechnet 🤣 Das Wetter sieht wieder gut aus....Wir werden heute aber nur noch ein wenig die City erkunden... inklusive der Pubs 🍻

    Killarney

    April 24 in Ireland

    In ein paar Minuten waren wir schon zu Fuß in der Innenstadt. Killarney ist ein echt hübsches Städtchen. Nachdem wir lecker gegessen haben, mussten wir uns natürlich noch das ein oder andere Pub anschauen. Hier haben wir auch ein sehr nettes älteres Paar aus Kanada kennengelernt.

    Heading south to Killarney

    December 10, 2016 in Ireland

    Left at 10 am from Galway today heading to Killarney. Had a one hour transfer in Limerick. Not a pretty city at all-very industrialized. However Killarney was sunny and gorgeous. My hostel is 500 m from the gates of the National Park. The town reminds me of Banff and Newfoundland combined. Tomorrow I am going to check it out. So I went for a stroll after dinner tonight a come across Santa wishing good cheer. Feels weird because is warm, sunny but all the Christmas decorations are out. Could this be California? Headed out shopping afterwards and then heard some great Celtic music.....so I had to check it out. Had a pint of G and listened to the band and an older chap, I think his name was Tony bought me another pint and chatted my ear off in Gaelic. I was confused and just smiled , laughed and nodded. He fessed up that he was a retired psychologist, dedicated an Irish ballad to me, and made me laugh. The music was fabulous and the band played Folsom County in traditional Celtic beat and it was great. This town feels alive and great!Read more

    Ring of Kerry, Skellig Ring, Ireland

    August 25, 2017 in Ireland

    Drove from Cork to Kenmore, this was our starting point for our sightseeing around the Ring of Kerry and the Skellig Ring today. Couldn't believe the wild flowers on the side of the road and purple/pink heather all over the mountains. Large Red Fushia bushes growing wild on the roadside, orange, yellow, purple flowers and wild blackberries everywhere. The homes all have the largest hydrangeas bushes I've ever seen with colours from white to pale pink to blue to purple to almost a red - stunning. The scenery was amazing - deep emerald green fields held in by rock walls dotted with white sheep. Rugged stony outcrops laced with lichens. The sheer Cliffs of Kerry at Portmagee and sleepy fishing villages. Grand!Read more

    Muckross Abbey, House & Torc Waterfalls

    December 12, 2016 in Ireland

    I was set to do the Ring of Kerry this morning before moving onto Cork but my tour was cancelled. Bummer I was really looking forward to it but I was the only one going so it wasn't feasible for the tour company. Instead I decided to go up to Torc waterfalls on the park. It was drizzling when I left and by the time I stopped off to have lunch and give my feet a rest (12km in) it was pouring down rain. The last 8 kms were really wet. The polish girls at the hostel were super and threw my coat into the dryer. My feet really hurt but it was well worth it. I also found out that the creatures in the park were the original Red deer of Ireland, which have existed only in Ireland for centuries. The crazy looking second creature is the purebred Japanese Sika deer and was brought to the island by nobility for hunting purposes. Interestingly both deer graze side by side with cattle in the National Park.Read more

    Dingle all the way

    December 13, 2016 in Ireland

    Wow it just keeps getting better. I am in Dingle the most westerly part of Ireland and it is so green including the water. It has been stormy all but I have given to the rain and pressed on. I was going to go on a boat cruise to see the dolphins but the wind picked up and the rain set in. Checked into my hostel and so far am the only one here, yeah! Maybe I'll get a good night sleep. Dingle us very touristy and so a lot of places are shut down for the season. I had fresh fish and chips at a local pub and managed to check the whole town out already, population 1200. I don't remember the water this green in Newfoundland but then again they don't have palm trees like Dingle.Read more
