Ireland Day 4 - Ring of Kerry

Day four in Ireland was our most car-intensive day (about 14 hours in the car!). We drove to County Kerry to do the famous scenic drive called the "Ring of Kerry."

It was a beautiful day - we had some really nice blue skies in the morning and lots of amazing views during the drive.

At one point we went off the beaten track a bit and visited a small castle. Ballycarbery Castle was near the town of Caherciveen.

We also went around the Ring of Skellig - an area off the Ring of Kerry where buses can't go (since the roads are too narrow. We got some beautiful views looking over a cliff on the ocean.

However, it was really, really windy.

Towards the end we saw Ladies' View, named for Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, who enjoyed the spot.

We also stopped at a beautiful lake in Killarney National Park.

When we finally made it back home, Jeff whipped up pasta for dinner and we all watched 'District 9' before falling asleep.
