Traveling: Ring of Kerry, Ireland

From Killarney, another famous coastal drive is the Ring of Kerry. Supposedly the views are better than the Slea Head Drive in Dingle Peninsula, but we wouldn’t know because the day was covered in fog.



We stopped in lots of small towns: Killorglin, where they have the Puck festival that celebrates a goat as king, Cahersiveen, that has the Old Barracks Heritage Center (Michael Collin’s Museum), Waterville, where Charlie Chaplin used to vacation, Caherdaniel, which is a tiny beach town and hometown of Daniel O’Connell, Sneem, where Charles de Gaulle vacationed, Macroom, Michael Collin’s ambush place, and many viewpoints that were covered in rain, fog, or mist throughout the day.

The best thing of the afternoon was actually the chowder and soda bread I had while waiting for the rain to pass, but finally, towards the end of the supposedly scenic drive, the fog dissipated and left us with the beautiful views of Killarney’s Lakes from Moll’s Gap and Ladies’ View.
