Hey Jams, this is beautiful, it makes me want to come back this fall. We were the last two years, staying at B&Bs in Killarney mainly, and one night on the western coast and other towns.

Happy WW/WT! Thanks for peeking at our American July 4 small town parade.

What a stark beautiful landscape.

We are of course familiar with foggy hills and valleys here ;)

I remember Kerry being both grey-rocky and very, very green, all at once. I've only visited there one time. I'd love to return.

County Kerry, glad to say I have been there. And I think it looked like that! ha ah. It was November so it was cold and drizzling.
