We say goodbye to our Air BNB “Lig Do Scith”
After one of our best days on the holiday so far on Skellig Michael, we did some washing and ironing, said goodby to our pet ginger cat, Labrador dog and Air BNB abode and continued our travels on the Ring of Kerry. First stop was Waterville where the weather was a little better than yesterday so we wandered around the town amongst the throngs of tourist bus visitors all clambering around the sights of Waterville. After lunch, we resumed our road trip around the Ring of Kerry stopping at numerous vantage points including the pass just outside Waterville which gave us great views of the village on one side and the coast with islands on the other side.

A little further down the coast near Caherdaniel, we got our first glimpse of the two Skellig’s from another vantage point which is the first time we have seen them since Portmagee. We travelled down a one track switchback road to a harbour and then after another 30 minutes around the Ring of Kerry we stopped at O’Carroll’s Bar and Grill (Irelands only beach bar) for afternoon tea. We then continued on the Ring of Kerry to Sneem, a lovely tourist village

Tish on the Waterville Shoreline
where once again we competed with loads of tourist bus visitors which we figured was good for the local economy. After perusing the gift shop, we continued our journey to Kenmare where we visited the Ring of Stones, constructed sometime between 2500 and 500 BC by druids and consisted of a centre “burial” stone and 15 stones around the circumference.

We then headed back to Kevin and Olivia’s house in Watergrasshill stopping at the local ballpark to check out a ”Hurling” match.
