Visitors, Going to the Ring of Kerry

The B.B. B&B hosts Sharon and Jaime, great friends and honoured Commenters of this blog. Their visit started with a chilly walk around Dublin, but all four of us were pleasantly surprised to see that Grafton Street has been decorated for Christmas.

Tomorrow, we depart for the Ring of Kerry. Anita and I saved this famous Irish destination for our esteemed visitors. Our first stops will be the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, followed by a night at a B&B in Killarney. On Monday, we’ll drive around the Ring of Kerry clockwise — the opposite of the direction that the tour buses use. On Tuesday, we plan to visit the Rock of Cashel.

By coincidence, we served Cashel Blue cheese at our party last night.

    It has been 15 years since I visited Dublin and I am very jealous that my cousin, Jaime is there with you this Thanksgiving. Just a quick note to let her know that us “Hoosiers” are thinking of her. Todd, Heather and TJ

    Our roadtrip through Ireland was awesome!!!

    We saw the “Cliffs of Insanity” from “The Princess Bride”!!!
    & the two castles we saw today are not to be missed even though I am a sucker for castles. I had Cashel Blue cheese quiche in Cashel & bought some local pottery there too. Well, I need to get back to my Guiness, so that is all for tonite….

    I concur with Sharon…our road trip through the western and south-western counties WAS awesome! When I was last here in early 2003, I saw many of the same sites that we just toured and it was very interesting to see what has changed and what has remained the same. I am *very* pleased to announce that I finally made it inside the Rock of Cashel. For those of you who remember my first trip to Ireland, you will remember that I was very sadly and rudely denied entry to ROC. My despair knew no bounds. Today I was able to cross it off my life-time to-do list. All in all a very good day.

I’m a journalism student studying in London and currently i am writing a piece for a travel magazine about the ring of Kerry. Since the age of three i have lived in london however i was born in a place called Ballinasloe, Galway, Ireland and i am very much in touch with my heritage routes. About five years ago my family and I took the trip around the ring of Kerry and for years i have been waiting for the opportunity to write about the amazing experience. Its great to see that other people realise the destinations true cultural and natural beauty and i was just wondering if any of you would be willing to personlly email telling me all about your trip around Kerry so that i could add some of your quotes into my piece. My email address is and i would really appeciate any help given. Thanks a lot, Kelly
