Skellig Islands. "But for the magic that takes you out, far out of this time and this world, there is Skellig Michael, ten miles off the Kerry Coast, shooting straight up 700 feet out of the Atlantic. Whoever has not stood in the graveyards at the summit of that cliff, among the beehive dwellings and their beehive oratory, does not know Ireland through and through, It is the beauty of Ireland that has made us what we are." George Bernard Shaw

Southwest of Ireland, particularly County, Kerry, is world renowned for spectacular landscapes, rugged beauty and friendly locals. Touring this region combines endless photo opportunities and all the Irish history, folklore and fun a visitor can imagine. Basing yourself in and around Killarney gives you unlimited access to top notch accommodations, sightseeing, restaurants and nightlife while not sacrificing what you really came for - the natural beauty of Ireland. As was so eloquently stated by beloved Kerryman and author John B. Keane, “only in Kerry, with its magical retreats, can one experience such peace.”In County Kerry, home to the most western point in all of Europe, one of Ireland’s most beloved peninsulas and breathtaking drives, the infamous Ring of Kerry, awaits. Jutting into the Atlantic Ocean, the Ring of Kerry is ranked as one of the top 50 Drives in the entire world! On the route you’ll look out to one of Irelands two UNESCO World Heritage Sites - Skellig Michael, where centuries a ...

Day 4: Managed to complete the Ring of Kerry today. The weather was really horrible this morning which scrubbed our bid to boat out to Skellig Michael. By the time we reached the Cliffs of Kerry it had cleared and we were provided with some pretty spectacular views of the Skelligs. The remainder of the Ring drive and the Killarney National Park was wonderful. Will hate to leave tomorrow but we are off to Cork and then London.
Day 3: Left Galway early from our Pillo Hotel (sweet place!) and made it to the Aillwee Cave ahead of the rain. By the time we circuited the cave route the rains had stopped and we took off for the Cliffs of Moher. What views!!! I hated leaving but we had to make our Tarbert-Killeen Ferry which ended up being a pleasant 20 min ride. We reached the south shore at low tide and were treated to great views of the emptied bay. Now I can be spontaneous and love adventure but with a TomTom that is suspect I was dreading the cross country drive to Killarney. It turned out to be quite breathtaking though that darn GPS took us through country that I would never have guessed existed :-) Tomorrow we are hoping to reach Skellig Michael. :-) G-night mates!
I had the most amazing day to Skellig Michael. Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty.
