County Kerry

We are currently staying on the Corca Dhuibhne (Dingle Peninsula) in County Chiarrai (Kerry), an Irish language area, for a few days.  Our host organised a getaway down here from Tuesday to Friday.  This morning Dad & I went for a bit of a wander to find a museum that I found a brochure for – Musaem Chorca Dhubhne in Baile an Fheirtearaigh (Ballyferriter).  After asking a hotel staff member which way to turn from the hotel driveway and how long it would take, off we went.  I neglected to say we didn’t have a vehicle – her estimated time frame of 5-7 minutes was obviously by car. Oh well, 8kms later we found the place we were looking for.  Of course, that meant 8kms BACK!  The little museum was quite interesting, all about the area, and only cost 4 euro for the two entry tickets, so it was worth the exercise.

It is very picturesque here, picture postcard type scenery.  The next parish is across the water a bit – the Atlantic Ocean that is.  From here the next land is the United States of America.

It was very interesting walking along the road though as there is virtually no shoulder on the road and the hedges are right up against the road boundary.  Fuschia is like a wild plant and grows into hedges about 6 high.  Once again I have forgotten to pack the camera lead so no pics of the scenery.

Until next time…
