A rather long day mainly just driving.

Firstly we headed north to do a small scenic drive along the Wild Atlantic Way, then headed back into Galway and onwards to Dingle and ultimately Killarney.

Given it was drizzly it added a certain atmosphere to the drive, especially around Galway.

However the drive to and around Dingle was spectacular. Unfortunately there were few places to pull over and just take in the scenery (very narrow winding roads) and the drive down took longer than I expected. Lee-ann got some nice photos from the car, so I will have to try and swipe them at some stage to post.

Finally arrived at our accommodation around 19:30. In more rural places they don’t seem to have street names and numbers. So they give you a locality and then you have to ring them and they stand out the front and flag you down. It is not as though they are the only dwelling in the place as most streets seem to be a constant procession of house after house, even in the rural localities. Hate to be a postie around here!

Anyway the Airbnb gods were smiling on us and this place is luxury for $90 a night. The host are very convivial and relaxed. At night we went down the road to a luxury hotel and had a drink, whilst overlooking the lake. Lots of rich Americans on golf holidays. It really would be nice to have sufficient money that you could spend your time in such resorts and not worry about the costs.

Tomorrow doing the Ring of Kerry.
