Farm Animals and Gorgeous Views in Killarney

The thing about a trip to Ireland is that every single place you visit becomes your favorite.

Killarney, in County Kerry, is another one of those places. A small town, but so much to see. Let’s  jump into the photos.

Some random river with perfectly photogenic canoes. Ho hum.

I hate having my photo taken, but Mom did some stealth shooting of me doing what I love. I remember being so happy perched on that rock.

We visited the traditionally-run Muckross Farm in Killarney, and we sampled freshly made butter. I try to eat vegan most of the time, but that butter? That could make me permanently fall off the vegan wagon.

    Wonderful, love the horses, big horses, the colorful boats, all so small and efficient. imagine picking out the color, what paint store, what has your neighbor chosen, who are you parked next too, what is your personal preference to smile at your neighbor with. Is it Sherwin Williams or is it Obrien O’douls, or simply does Valspar have that many choices in color.

      Rob – I thought that too about the boats! I wondered – did they all get together and decide the best color scheme? Thanks for commenting.

    Such wonderful pictures! Some of them remind me of our trip to Ireland. It is so exceptionally scenic. Round every turn there is something new and wonderful to see. Did you encounter any fairy trees?

    • deonne April 18, 2017 at 7:08 pm #

      Thank you, Lee! And yes, we saw fairy trees in Newry in Northern Ireland. So delightful! I even have a fairy door in my kitchen now. πŸ™‚

    Whats a fairy door, sounds like something we all could enjoy!
    Oh yes those rainbows of lines of boats, and that yellow butter coloured house, no wonder the butter was so yummy!
    Oh so great your Mom captured you for a change in a photo, BEAUTIFUL YOU AND ALL AROUND YOU….
    And oh my what fabulous huge horses; the one where are your driving the horse reminded me of back in 1980 I did a trip on the west coast of dingle Ireland and spent a whole week with a horse that looked like that hors, her name was Phyllis. She was a dappled Gray and pulled our rented gypsy wagon, that we traveled and lived in,for three hours a day and then took her off and put her in a designated field, after parking nearby there. Then off to explore the countryside for a day and start over again; it was really an incredible experience,and oh the music and the cliffs of Mohair!!!!
    Thanks for taking us along memory lane,
    Lynda

    Lynda – Everyone needs a fairy door! They’re little doors you can stick on a wall – mine’s in my kitchen – to invite fairies in. They’re also on trees in Ireland, and are fun and whimsical. (Google it for lots of examples.) Your Dingle experience sounds magical, and the Cliffs of Moher are incredible. There’s so much to see, I’m already plotting a trip back to Ireland and Scotland, which is equally wonderful. I’ll post photos from that leg of the trip this summer.

    I adore all of these but the cats, boats and window box spoke to me.

      Sherry – Thanks for voting! I appreciate hearing what you all respond to.
