I just realised I never uploaded a post from that wonderful trip I took with my parents just before moving to Tasmania, you know…..back in March 2015!! Whoops!
My parents (the wonderful people that they are, Hi Mom! Hi Dad!) offered to drive me down early and do a little road trip around the Ring of Kerry and beyond. I put up a post about the Iveragh Peninsula peninsula before if you’d like to see some more of the beautiful county of Kerry.
I could go into great detail about the places we visited but you know what they say, a picture tells a thousand words, so I’ll let the images do the talking. However for those of you wanting more information….OK……here’s what you do.
- Fly to Ireland
- Drive to Kerry
- Drive around the entire coastline
- Thank me later 🙂
The internet is full of articles on almost every inch of this planet and countless books have been written on every country you can visit. But there’s one thing they can’t give you. The experience of actually going there and being in the place, finding your own adventure whilst there and making it your own.
Aaaaaanyhoo without further ado, let’s take a look at the Dingle Peninsula shall we? Dingle is of course famous for a certain dolphin called Fungi, who we saw while I was on a fishing trip with my friends for a stag weekend! Good times. I can’t share those photos though 😀 Highlights for me? The Slea Head drive for sure, absolutely amazing! The majority of photos below are from that part of the peninsula. The Conor Pass which lies to the North East of Dingle is spectacular also.
The trip around the Dingle peninsula was all too brief and this is an area I’m dying to get back to and have a proper explore of, including hiking the mountains and hills you see in these photos. I’m always drawn to mountains, I think I may have been a goat or something in a previous life 🙂
