    Killorglin & Kerry Bog Village

    September 3, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    After leaving the stables, we drive to Killorglin, a town famous for hosting whats is regarded as Ireland's oldest festival: the Puck Fair.
    It might sound funny, but this town has goat king (called, in fact, Puck). And indeed the statue of the Lord Goat of Killorglin stands at the gates of the town. However, the funniest part still has to come: every year on the 10th August a wild male goat is captured and brought to the town square, where he is crowned king. 🐐👑 He is then celebrated for 3 days until being released. This festival is apparently a very popular attraction and takes place every single year from the 10th until the 12th of August.

    We continue driving until reaching the Kerry Bog village, a reconstruction of the local villages in the area. For a 5-euro entrance ticket we get to visit some houses including a farm with the ponies!

    We we can back to the bus, Sean drives us to panoramic stop from where we enjoy a nice view of the mountains all around us... as well as a cute donkey with dog lying on his back! 😍

    We continue driving for another 5 minutes before finally reaching the coastline. In this point, the cliff is steeply diving into the rough water of the Atlantic Ocean and, despite the mist, we can get a glimpse of the Dingle Peninsula and Inch Beach.
