We drove the amazing Ring of Kerry today. We only had time for a small part of it, we were wishing we had more days in Ireland to drive the rest of it. This is one incredibly beautiful country. As part of the Wild Atlantic Way, the Ring of Kerry (or Iveragh Peninsula to give it its correct name) is the Kerry tourist trail - the mystical & unspoiled region of Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Its spectacular beauty is beyond question and it is a natural center for outdoor pursuits that include golf, water-sports, cycling, walking, running, riding and the very best fishing in freshwater rivers for salmon & trout and at sea for bass, ray, pollack, conger eel, cod, flounder, wrasse, mullet, mackerel and tuna.

The Ring of Kerry has some of the Europe's finest beaches that provide all the facilities for a traditional seaside holiday. Above all, the Ring of Kerry provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland. Old Monasteries and a landscape carved out of rock by the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago. Visitors to Ireland should not miss a trip to the beautiful Ring of Kerry.

After our incredible drive, we stopped at the Sneem Hotel, it was fantastic. The balcony was huge with views of the mountains and the sea. This will be our last update from Ireland, we will be flying out of Dublin on the 6th to Southampton, England for our cruise back to the United States. We absolutely loved this country and it's people, Ireland is definitely my favorite country out of the 33 I have visited. We will be visiting several more countries on the cruise back, check back later for more when we return to Branson, Missouri.
