Another deserted ghost estate, in Sneem

We visited the beautiful, stately Muckross House in Killarney.

Muckross House gardens

The (misty) Ring of Kerry

The famous Ring of Kerry is as famous for its misty weather as it is for its raw beauty. We saw a bit of both.

Luckily for us, we also found one of the best toilets in Ireland.

And one of the nicest stone houses in the making.

Then again, if you prefer your houses pink, this one may be more to your preference.

Killarney town

For some reason the words "Killarney" and "town" always seem to go together. It's difficult just to say "Killarney". The town of Killarney was a pretty and busy place.

A patient little horse waiting for his owner near the Gap of Dunloe.

And so many birds hangin' about the town ...

And still I am collecting shop names with Irish surnames ...
