We’ve been having a great time touring around Ireland! I thought that I’d share some pictures of our trip today. We landed in Dublin on Wednesday morning, picked up the rental car and headed out to Galway. The scenery was beautiful!
Our first stop…LUNCH! We grabbed a bite to eat at The King’s Head Bistro. The building is about 800 years old and there is lots of history inside!
After lunch, we headed out for a walk around Galway. We picked up a few souvenirs and then headed to the water.
We headed back out to dinner and then turned in early that night after being up for almost 2 days straight. Yikes!
The buildings and scenery between Galway and Killarney were just as amazing!
We arrived at our hotel for the next two nights in Killarney…The Killarney Lodge Guesthouse!
Check out the tea room!
We’ve spent a fair amount of time enjoying the tea and comfy couches!
After dropping our things off at the lodge, we headed out to drive the Ring Of Kerry. We had a bit of rain for the drive, but it was still just beautiful! Here are some of the amazing sites!
Unfortunately, the last stretch of the road heading back to Killarney that runs past the Ross Castle was closed for our drive so we had to take a different route back. But that made us get up the next morning and go for a little hike from our lodge to the Ross Castle…the detour was definitely worth it!
The park leading up to the Ross Castle is full of amazing walking trails!
There are horses pulling carriages all over the park too!
The Ross Castle and the grounds around it are stunning!
We caught a few glimpses of the castle through the trees as we walked back to the lodge.
And then we were off to the Blarney Castle!
Another beautiful castle with amazing gardens!
We did climb to the top of the castle…but there was no kissing of the Blarney Stone for me. After hearing some rumors about what people to do that stone and reading that 400,000 other people per year give it a kiss…I decided to take picture and keep on walking. I think that I have enough of the gift of gab. Ha!
Hope that you enjoyed seeing what we’ve been up to so far! We’ve got another day in Ireland and then we head over to London to catch the cruise! I’m planning to share a few more pictures from the trip on Wednesday. Or you can swing by my Facebook page, I’ve been sharing photos along the way out there too!
