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!

Some stunning light up at Dromluska Cottage in the Black Valley last month. I always think the drive in is ridiculously long until I get out and shoot this place. It’s worth every minute on the road. 📸

The view from the top of the Devils Ladder on the way back down from Carrauntoohil this morning. Ashamed to say it was my first time climbing the mountain today, and it’s only over the road from me. Another one off the bucket list anyway.✔️

Lots of unanswered questions in this world, but why the hell did St Patrick not banish the migies too!?

This is Ross Castle ross_castle_ire and it's just around the corner from our hotel.

Before anyone eats the head off me I took this before the lockdown! 😬 Had a bit of a run in with someone earlier today who thought I was still taking photos! Taken at the beautiful St Finians Bay on the Skellig Ring. Hope everyone is keeping well and safe. Have a good weekend guys! 🏠

How cool was this hiking trail that led to a waterfall? So cool that I took a picture of the stairway instead of the waterfall that was right behind me. Oh the waterfall is beautiful, but this little stairway - little he says...the sucker about wore me out - did more to make me feel like I was in Ireland then just about anything. A great trail to walk with fantastic views if you'reever in Killarney.

GAP OF DUNLOE🍀 
Need i say more? 
Can we just appreciate that scenery??! 

If you’re ever visiting Killarney be sure to stop at the gap for some of the most unreal views everrrrr. #
As the roads are so narrow, one of the main forms of transport through the gap, is horse and cart, and not often passable by car. 

During our trip, we had the bessssst weather, however on the day we went to the gap of Dunloe, it rained non stop and all horse and carts had stopped operating for the day because of the slippery road conditions (typically my luck). 

We returned the next day and finally managed to squeeze it into our busy itinerary, and we were definitely NOT disappointed. How could you be with those views 🤩. 

Safe to say the kids had a ball and we were definitely glad we returned the following day to enjoy the experience.

Ross Castle sits on the edge of Killarney’s lower lake and was built by O’Donoghue Mór in the 15th century. Legend of this castle 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.

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!
