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!

Killarney, last night. I should really learn how to focus blend, I took other photos here last night that I preferred, but there was a breeze, and this required an exposure or a few seconds, so the little vines are blurry in all the other shots 😭

The Ancient Yew Tree in Muckross Abbey, Killarney National Park.

The Abbey's true name is "The Franciscan Friary of Irrelagh". It was founded in the 1440s and inhabited up until 1698. This tree itself is said to be over 400 years old, with some experts claiming it to be well over 700 years old.

In ancient Ireland, Yew trees were sometimes planted in ecclesastical sites as they were considered sacred and seen as a symbol of life and death.

The Yew tree produces toxins that are highly poisonous. It is common to find Yews in an open space, as the toxins secreted through its roots ensure not much else will grow within their vicinity.

Male trees produce cones while females produce red berries, each containing a single seed. If you come across one of these trees, I'd recommend trying the berries as they are nice and sweet to the taste. Just make sure to spit out the seed to avoid cardiac arrest.

That’s one happy Aishling right there ☺️
If you’ve been wanting to get into wild swimming, take this as your sign to start! Just go for it… that’s what I did last year and now I can’t be stopped 🧜🏼‍♀️ And if I can do it, honestly anyone can!

Get in, get in, get in…just go for it 😁

Muckross House, Gardens & all the paths that lead you deep into the National Park, allow you to step back in time or gift yourself the silence & tranquility of wandering deep into the entangled trees as the sounds of water slush on the stones......

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 😎

What better way to mark my 300th consecutive swim the other week than a splash at a waterfall. Kerry giving South East Asia a run for its money.

Don’t think I’ll ever get board of lush green scenery tbh 🍃
