Arrived in Killarney tonight after travelling thru much of Kerry and Claire. Most of this leg has been viewing the incredible views. Leanne and I had bought a third memory card as we are well over 600 pictures right now. Last night was spent in Doohlin and we listened to a local "jam" session that featured many folk songs of the area. As the Scottish would say "it was brilliant" and the Irish would say it was a good "craic". We started the day by taking a ferry across the Shannon River and went to Dingle a fishing town. Then we went out on the Dingle Peninsula to look at the Blasket Islands from afar. Went down to the Atlantic ocean today and walked along the beach. Freezing cold but well worth it. Lots of great shots of cliffs and coastline over the last few days. The roads here are about the size of a back lane with two way traffic. They are very bumpy and it hasn't been the most comfortable of rides but the group we are with makes up for it as they are great to hand with. We managed to fins a deep fried Mars bar today and it was good but not great as we expected. In fact most of the food here is pretty standard fair though the meal at the small inn we drank at last night was incredible. Went to Dunsmore Head as well which is the most westerly point in Ireland. Extremely windy today and it felt like you might blow of the top. The last stop was Killarney National Park for some quick photos and a night on the town. A few of us got entertained by Pad a local entertainer who does a one man show for tips. It was entertaining though he would drive you nuts if you had to watch it to long.
The best thing about Ireland is the fact that no matter how much you drink, no hangover. I think I've now become an official pint man. May have to reorganize the basement in order to put the taps in.
