    Ring of Kerry, Ladies View

    September 3, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    We are almost at the end of our Ring of Kerry tour and unfortunately the weather hasn't really been on our side. Our next stop is the so-called Ladies View, a panoramic point in the middle of Killarney National Park offering a great sight of lakes. Unfortunately, the mist totally blocks the view.

    Ironically, as soon as we start again driving, the mist starts clearing out and we get some glimpses of the lakes on our left handside. The last stretch of the roas is not only extremely narrow and with no guardrail on the sides, but also gets more and more tortuous the more we go on. In order to avoid hitting cars coming in the opposite direction, Sean blows the horn before every single bend and the other cars actually "answer back" rythmically creating a sort of funny concert.
    I love the Irish!
