The very first post I wrote about my time in this wonderful country was titled 'Ireland - 50 Shades of Green, Blue & Beer' - you can find this on my website titled Nomadic Lives (for some insightful reading, I promise); here are some useful links: 7 Travel Lessons from my 1st Independent Excursion - Ireland - 50 Shades of Green, Blue & Beer - 11 Irish Facts & Myth Busters - Coming back to the point at hand, I believe I managed to capture a lot of what makes Ireland special in that one single title. ...

Ring of Kerry, Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland
With not much to do around the causeway, we decided to take a car ride on the Ring of Kerry which is a 179 km scenic drive on the Southwest coast of Ireland. It may sound like a lot but with your car cruising at 80km per hour, it is easy to complete the drive in three hours without stopping to get magnificent pictures. If you wish to stop to get those captivating pictures, it will take you about 4 hours. There are numerous sea-side restaurants which come on the way and are worth trying. There is a lot of greenery on the way and the car never leaves the ocean side. We did stop at some roadside shack to eat where there was amazing food and a great view by the ocean. There was bird feeding at the restaurant too. Even this was an instant plan and it felt great to see that there are great things in Ireland which we hadn’t even heard of before. We did not expect much and were awed at all the spontaneous things that sprung towards us.

Weekend Getaways from Killarney  

My last day in Ireland was definitely an emotional one. Even then, I decided to cover maximum places I could to make the most of the day. This is the day I understood what the coming days of solo traveling would look like! I walked up to the National Museum of Archaeology, National Gallery of Ireland, Kilmainham Gaol, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Guiness Brewery, and lastly went for shopping at Penneys and at Carrol’s Irish Gifts. I actually got lost that day when I was trying to reach Kilmainham Gaol. And that’s when I plugged in my earphones, started the Rick Steves Audio guide, and listened to Ireland’s history while I walked towards the Gaol (45 minutes walk), which closed down the minute I reached there! ???? I learned a lot about problem-solving, and managing my emotions in times of crisis that day!

About Killarney

The best part about Killarney National Park, outside of it's abundant natural beauty of course, is the existence of charming horse-drawn buggies! A mode of transport long extinct in most parts of the world, it can be experienced in abundance while exploring the National Park! Dominated primarily by its three lakes - Lough Leane, Muckross Lake & the Upper Lake, the National Park is more than 10000 hectares of pure relentless natural beauty. Reserve at least one whole day to explore at leisure!
