    Kenmare to Killarney

    August 18, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Well, today's hike, the last one of the Kerry Way, is not for the faint hearted. We had everything on the trail. Lots of rain, patchy at some times, sunshine (which is good, but it lasts only for a few minutes until the next shower) etc...

    The trail itself was pretty eay to walk, not too boggy. Ere were just three passages through rivers, that made the walk tricky. There was even one with a rope. But at the end, we managed them all.

    After a third of the trail, we joined the path that came from Killarney, the same we took a week ago when we started the Kerry Way. We made the same rest at Lord Brandon's Cottage. Just before the B&B. We had a week ago, we attacked the ascent to the Gap of Dunloe. It's a narrow montain passage to the otherside of Killarney. For us, this was a more direct route to where the hotel was located.

    The Gap of Dunloe is used by many jaunting cars with tourists. These are small carts with 4 passengers. They normally ride from Lord Brandon's Cottage to the Gap of Dunloe. Nice for families.

    From this point, we had only 5 km to make until our final destination and the end of The Kerry Way.

    During the Kerry Way, this was the best day we had on the whole walk, well seen weatherwise. We decided to leave the Kerry Way and follow another path down to the beach. Here we could enjoy a truly irish day on the beach !Read more

    The Europe Resort & SPA A Liebherr Story

    August 19, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    We ended our last hike just by the Killarney Lake. We stayed two nights at the wonderful Europe Resort. This brilliant hotel was built by the german Liebherr Group in the fifties and became one of the first hotels in the area. First it was used to accommodate clients, who visited the Liebherr factory (production of container cranes). Then in the eighties, the hotel opened to the public.Read more
