The Bantry House
Long winding challenging drive from Kinsale in County Cork to Kenmare, County Kerry today along the Wild Atlantic Way.

Wild is right! Skinny roads, blind curves, no shoulders except for brush or stone walls. And 100 km/hr speed limits posted.

All the while driving on the left side of the road, sitting on the right in the car. Ha!

Stopped in Bantry to stretch our legs and visit the Bantry House and grounds and eat a simple lunch in the car. And get out of the car!

Staying at a B&B above a pub right on the main street in Kenmare. This ought to be interesting.

Done driving. Too bad we’re four hours from Dublin, plus still have a 3-hour drive to Galway ahead of us, too.

Have vowed no more driving vacations in Europe. Will only go where trains, buses, and our feet will take us.

Good night, all!
