Kerry ring and Cliffs of Moher
I woke around 6 am, bathroom, biscuits for breakfast and I left 20 minutes later. Today it was a long ride in front of me. First I went south to the Ring of Kerry, a popular tourist circle. I started with Killarney National Park. On my way there I stopped at a gas station 32 € gas and 6 € food. In NP I visited the ruins of Muckross Abbey with graveyard horses and cows, 20 meters high Torc waterfall with a hiking path, and Ladies View (closed, rain) of the lake. Goat and deer on the narrow road, a lot of road kill (fox, bird, hedgehog).
From there I moved further to coastal towns and beaches on the Iveragh Peninsula. On my way, I stopped in Sneem, Waterville, and Cahersiveen. In the first town, I spent half an hour, some statues in the park, St Michael’s church, nice view from the bridge. Bought a few souvenirs and moved on. In the second town, it was a short stop, by the beach, a stop at transatlantic cable. In the last town it was time to relax a bit, walk around (Daniel O’Connell Church), and sat for a Guinness beer, 6 €, cash.
Next was 4 4-hour ride to the Cliffs of Moher, Google took me over local roads, narrow and high-speed limits. A short stop in Miltown Malbay before continuing. Also, I was on the ferry to save some time, 23 € one way. When I arrived I had trouble parking. Don’t go to the main entrance if you are not visiting the museum. On the other side, I paid parking 13 €. The cliffs were nice, but some walking uphill, was windy and crowded. A few more hours on the road to B&B in the countryside close to Galway where I was staying, 85 €. Nice owner Mary (they visited Slovenia), good room (big, clean). Chatted a bit, took a shower, made myself a sandwich (full fridge), and fell asleep in front of the TV early around 21h.
