I need to write about what I did the last two days!
Yesterday we went to the Cliffs of Moher. They were absolutely spectacular! And God blessed us with another amazing day of beautiful weather. Apparently the Cliffs are usually so covered in fog you can barely see them, but yesterday we could see all 700ft of them.
The rest of the afternoon was spent driving to our next destination: Killarney! We stayed at a hotel that was more of a B&B. We use real keys to get into our rooms and everything. We had dinner at the hotel and then decided to go out because there was a promise of live music. We went to a small pub in town and it was wonderful! There was a man playing guitar and singing (acoustic) and a man on the accordion as well. The crowd inside consisted of anyone from 18-80 and we all just sat there soaking up the atmosphere.
We started the day today with a jaunting car ride around Killarney National Park! So green and so wonderfully breathtaking. Our driver was so stereotypically Irish. He either chuckled or said “you know” after every single sentence he spoke. The horse’s name was Samson and the fog and the cold increased the beauty of the scenery.
After that we hopped on the coach for a ride around the Ring of Kerry for some more spectacular, amazing, beautiful, breathtaking, etc (I am running out of adjectives, fast!) scenery.
Next stop was Blarney Castle and I paid €10 to get to the top of the castle & kiss the wall above the blarney stone! (Long story.) Still worth it.
