    Galway to Kenmare

    October 2 in Ireland

    Just loving Ireland and today another of many contrasts. Set off from Galway for the Cliffs of Moher. The hour and a half drive was gorgeous, yet the countryside so rugged and farms so underdeveloped due to the land being so poor. The cliffs were another tourist site which was very well managed and we were lucky that they were not so busy although by the time we left we counted 15 tourist buses. The sun came out and the scenery was amazing although was very nervous about how stable the ground under our feet was. We drove on to a very old fashioned town full of pubs where we actually found a reasonably modern cafe for lunch. Our next stop was Adare, a beautiful tourist town with lovely shops and some thatched roof cottages. The scenery by now had completely changed and the whole area of Kerry seemed very prosperous compared to County Clare. We drove through Killarney but realised we would now be doing the most picturesque part of the Ring of Kerry as we made our way to Kenmare. Not wanting to get there too late and knowing we wanted to explore the area more tomorrow, we decided not to make any more stops and just carry on. The scenery was breathtaking and we arrived an hour later in Kenmare at 5 30 to find the loveliest little Irish town. Our accomodation was O’Donnabhain’s Hotel and our room was above the main bar. We wandered around the streets before settling into the bar for a lovely pub meal and live music. All gorgeous. After another walk around we retired upstairs and were surprised at how sound proof the room was- but how hard the bed was! Oh well can’t have everything!Read more

    Rain of Kerry ...

    May 20 in Ireland

    So today I was supposed to drive around the Ring of Kerry and be amazed by the breath taking views...
    Let's just say the weather has been atmospheric (ie raining continuously and quite windy...
    So I did drive around the Kerry but it didn't take me long... Because there weren't many breath taking views...
    I arrived early thus at this beautiful BandB and spent my afternoon watching a romantic version of Ireland... A movie called Leap Year... Had a Great time anyway... Will go out now to see if I can make it to the Stone circle I wanted to visit... Eat and hopefully some music !

    Day 9 - Guagan Barra Forrest,

    October 11, 2017 in Ireland

    The day started very windy and wild with terrential rain but after having a great breakfast we headed off up into the Guagan Barra Forrest for a walk. This forest reminded me of the Star Wars movie where you see the Ewoks or something that you would expect to find a fairy or two in. By the time we were getting to the end of the walk, the weather cleared just like that and it turned into a beautiful day. We left Guagen Barra and headed down into the penninsula. Stopped at a pub called McCartheys and had lunch. After lunch we headed down to the cable car over to the island and waited while a few of the group went across. Nice penninsular. Onwards we went to a stone circle and to get to it we had to tramp through the paddocks that had become spongy and boggy becuase of the recent rains. Heallys pass was the last location we looked at on route to our evening B&B and we did a long hike up the mountain to see the views. Spectacular.Read more

  • Day5

    Nass und glücklich endlich in Kenmare angekommen! Unser Motorrad darf in der Garage neben der Waschmaschine parken und die Vermieter haben uns einen Schlüssel zum Trockenraum gegeben. Sehr nett, sonst wäre unser Zimmer vermutlich bald ein Tropenhaus gewesen.
    In die Stadt sind wir nicht mehr gegangen, sondern haben im Hotel im die Ecke gegessen.Read more

    July 7, 2008 in Ireland

    Petit déjeuner à 8h15....là, les habitudes « frenchi » vont en prendre un coup...Irish breakfast for all....Pour certain la commande du p'tit dej est une formalité, pour d'autre c'est une autre histoire . Notre Serge (DG600) commande au pif et va se retrouver avec une tartine de beans sauce tomate sucrée....un gros fous rire dans la salle !

    Départ 9h30 , pour une boucle de 200 kms...la visite du Ring of Kerry. Premier paysages le parc National de Killarney à travers les Lady’s View. Un paysage surprenant car tropical. Les routes sont étroites avec beaucoup de lac et de roches noires.

    Arrêt 1/2 heure pour faire les courses pour un pique nique a Kenmare. Un superbe village ou les maisons ont des couleurs plus que surprenantes! Le temps est avec nous.

    Sneem to Kenmare

    August 17, 2017 in Ireland

    This was another morning on which we were prepared for rain. Lucky enough, the walk started off dry, even the sun came out. The main part of the Kerry Way followed the coast line. What we could see was actually the atlantic ocean. It looked more like a lake as the opposite side of the bay was so close.

    There was a part of the walk that llooked like a walk through the jungle. Ireland must really be a wet place, probably the wetest place in Europe.

    The last 7 km of the way turned out to become the toughest part of the day. We had to climb two hills, that became mountains as the soil became nearly impenetrable. A lot of bog. And last but not least we came into two heavy rain. Just before heading down to Kenmare, the sky opened up and the sun came out again.

    Kenmare is a very busy small town full of pretty small shops and restaurants. It has a population of 2100 people.
