This morning we packed up and said good-bye to Limerick and headed towards Killarney. Along the way, we drove the Ring of Kerry which is an amazing view from just one of the peninsulas of South Ireland. We stopped several times along the way at overlooks to view the gorgeous scenery of the Atlantic Ocean, mountains soaring into the clouds, and islands in the sea including Skellig Island which is also know as Star Wars Island featured in "The Force Awakens".
After we checked into the hotel in Killarney, we had a wonderful three course dinner at the hotel. Next door to our dining was a group of retirees from Ireland. After dinner, they opened the wall dividing the two rooms so the choir could perform an impromptu concert for them singing two of their concert songs. It was so appreciated by all of them.
After dinner was time on our own. Some chose to spend time in the swimming pool while others walked downtown enjoying the live music and shops along the streets. It's 10:00 and we just walked in but the streets are no where near closing down. Such a fun area to explore.
We are all settled into our rooms now and ready to turn in for the night. It has been yet another big day here in Ireland and we are up and out by 9 am tomorrow on our way to Dublin.
Due to the VERY slow internet here in Killarney, I will have to try to upload more of our pictures from today when we get to Dublin tomorrow. I got a few on just to give a sneak peak into our Monday adventures.
Good night from the mountains...
