    Heading south to Killarney

    December 10, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    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

    Muckross Abbey, House & Torc Waterfalls

    December 12, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    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 in 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

    Heading out to the Ring of Kerry. Today we have jaunty car ride and Irish traditional music and drama.s

    Peninsula is known as Ring of Kerry. Loved the long avenues of trees as we drive down the road. Photos taken at Aghadoe Heights. Henry reckons that everything goes in circles in Ireland people included.

    Green fields line the roads a very pretty area, reminiscent of dairy land at home with hedging. KILLORGLIN Sean driver's home. Have festival of King Puck goat over 3 days. Special stand for fair. Horses are traded during this time with lots of tinkers coming.

    Killarney

    May 31, 2018 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Dublin, 5:15
    Nach spontaner Planänderung - durch die Erkenntnis, dass ich deutlich weniger Zeit haben werde als gedacht - fuhr ich mit dem Bus in aller Früh um 6:15 nach Killarney im Südwesten Irlands, statt wie ursprünglich geplant nach Cork im Süden.
    Der Bus entließ mich am späten Vormittag in die Stadt. Mein erstes Ziel war das Black Sheep Hostel, meine Bleibe für die kommende Nacht. Das Hostel ist von Backpackern für Backpacker gemacht und war echt großartig. Super ausgestattet mit tollen gemütlichen Zimmern fühlte ich mich sofort wohl. Die Küche und die Gemeinschaftszimmer luden zu Unterhaltungen und, wer wollte, zum gemeinsamen Klampfen ein. Leider konnte ich die Atmospäre dort nur erhaschen, da ich zeitig zu Bett ging, um am nächsten Morgen meine nächste Etappe anzutreten. Es reichte aber, um meine Zimmergenossen Katja (Katharina?!) aus Deutschland und Roman aus Polen kennenzulernen. Die vegetarisch lebende und angehende Ernährungswissenschaftlerin "Katja" ist als Au pair in Irland tätig und erkundet nun von ihrem Ersparten ebenfalls die Insel. Roman redet sehr gerne und hat sich unheimlich viel Wissen über die Geschichte Osteuropas der letzten Jahrhunderte angesammelt. Das musste er uns als Deutsche natürlich alles ausführlich erläutern.

    Den Nachmittag nutzte ich, um mir mit meinem geliehenen Fahrrad ( auch im Linksverkehr...oha!) den südlich gelegenen Lough Leane und Muckross Lake anzuschauen. Und ich wurde wahrlich entlohnt. Eine herrliche Bucht reihte sich an die andere, im Hintergrund immer zwei wachende Berge, welche für mich das Tor zum Ring of Kerry markierten. Natürlich durften auch die obligatorischen irischen Burgen und Klöster nicht fehlen.
