Driving the Ring of Kerry

The Ring of Kerry on the west coast of Ireland is yet another – sigh – place I want to go back to.

That’s the main issue I have with a tour – you don’t have the option of stopping and exploring awhile, and the Ring of Kerry is one of those places that deserves a lot of attention.

Yes, it’s beautiful and walkable – there’s something called the Kerry Way Walk that I’d love to go back and do, just me, my backpack, a walking stick, and maybe some helpful leprechauns to guide me if I get lost. A girl can dream.

The towns have delightful names, like Ballinskelligs, Portmagee, and Sneem. Sneem! Say it out loud, it’s fun.

This was a quick trip, so I don’t have a ton of photos to share, but these will have to do. For now.

In lieu of helpful leprechauns, there are road signs.

I don’t remember what park this was, but I fell in love with those red benches.
