There are not many things that match the experience of riding your bike around Ross Castle and Ross Island during the summer while the sun splits the stones ☀  You can also catch some rays and admire the ducks by the lakeshore while down at Ross Castle 😎

Iggy got us both checked in to the fabulous *Dog Friendly* Dromhall Hotel this afternoon!
A late 50th present from herself to me. 
We left Dingle this morning and covered a lot of ground on our way to Killarney, so we'll be resting up tonight in style!
Sheep's Head is our destination for tomorrow evening, with as much as possible packed in between!

We just drove through the Gap of Dunloe (magical!!), the Black Valley, Moll's Gap and we are currently at the Dog Friendly, Dinis Cafe, in Muckross.
This is a beautiful stop off for walkers/cyclists, plus there's a water station and treats for our canine companions too!
* Another lucky find! *

We had an early start from Dingle this morning, in order to enjoy a peaceful Gap of Dunloe.
This is such a magical drive! So good, we drove up it twice!
Breakfast was enjoyed on the rocks just below our car there, before we headed for Killarney, via the Black Valley, Moll's Gap, diniscottagetearooms and Killarney National Park.
Huge thanks to Tommy Griffin, Kerry footballing legend, for the accommodation at his dog friendly muiris_dans Bar in Dingle last night!
Iggy has just surprised me with her delayed 50th birthday present to me! So tonight, we're staying at the *Dog Friendly* Dromhall Hotel!

Quite a lot of people categorise themselves as introverts or extroverts, or extraverted introverts and vice versa. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m an “activityvert” 😅 I’m most energised when I’m exploring new places, swimming in new locations, hiking mountains or staying busy doing the things I love outdoors 🤸🏻‍♀️

Anyone else here feel like they fall under the “activityvert” category?

Ross Castle sits on the edge of Killarney’s lower lake and was built by O’Donoghue Mór in the 15th century. The Castle came into the hands of the Brownes who became the Earls of Kenmare and owned an extensive portion of the lands that are now part of Killarney National Park . Legend has it that O’Donoghue still exists in a deep slumber under the waters of Lough Leane. On the first morning of May every seven years he rises from the lake on his magnificent white horse and circles the lake. Anyone catching a glimpse of him is said to be assured of good fortune for the rest of their lives. The large rock at the entrance to the bay is known as O’Donoghue’s prison. Ross Castle was the last stronghold in Munster to hold out against Cromwell. It was eventually taken by General Ludlow in 1652.
Ross Castle is open to the public during the summer months. Details from Ross Castle, Killarney, Co. Kerry
Telephone No: +353 64 6635851 Fax: +353 64 6635852 Email: rosscastle@opw.ie
By car, Ross Castle can be reached via a signposted right turn off the N71 travelling south from Killarney town or by walking or cycling from the Killarney House and Knockreer sections of the National Park. Jaunting cars also make the journey and are available at the jaunting car stand in the town.
Boat trips from Ross and Reen piers to Innisfallen on the Lower Lake and

This was just great to watch!
Iggy scored high marks with John and Noel Kissane, even though she has never worked with sheep like this before!
Iggy was born to two working parents and the natural herding instinct is there to see. They complimented her barking too, as that helps drive on the sheep even better!
When travel restrictions are lifted, please check out and support John and Noel's open days at the farm.

Thanks a mil for the invite guys!

Winter Lake Morning

Working back in Killarney National Park is like hanging out with an old friend, except now they've got new stories to tell.

I'm really enjoying having another look at locations that I didn't quite get to work in for my first book , for this next one.. KINGDOM ..( definitely coming this autumn ! ) 

It was apparently very easy to overlook some amazing locations and to rule out others for being difficult to get to. Now I have the time and a bit more confidence to take them on and see them in them in the first place .

Hope everyone is doing okay and staying safe and well. If you're the new owner of a print, book or calendar this year .. do let me know and I hope it was a welcome gift !!

Does anyone else hate getting their hair wet when they swim 😅

I’m either a swim hat gal or else my head isn’t getting under water… unless it’s wash day and I’m gonna wash my hair in the next day or two! Maybe it’s a curly gal thing I’m not sure but I know for sure I ain’t about that wet hair life 💁🏻‍♀️
