Ireland: Kissin' some Blarney before Killarney




Our flight from the UK arrived in Dublin early in the day so we took the first available bus to Cork. From here, it was only a short (30 min) bus ride to Blarney, the site of a castle and a small stone slab reputed to grant life-long eloquence to all who give it a kiss.


Tastes like stone soup.


Don't fall down the hole!



Nice view from the top


The gardens were also quite impressive, like the illustrations you'd find accompanying a fairy tale.


Who's that?



Where'd he come from?


Notice how green these Irish pictures are compared to those of Italy.


We then made our way to Killarney, a small city on the west coast of Ireland and very close to the Ring of Kerry, supposedly one of the country's prettiest sites. Unfortunately, we never got as far as the Ring, but did find a national park and Ross Castle nearby.

Dinner


Good to have a third person take a picture everyone now and then.






Next: the search for Mike's Irish roots!
