On the road again traveling The Ring Of Kerry. The countryside was beautiful with lush green hillsides, hedge rows, penny walls and ancient ruins.
The Ring of Kerry is an 111-mile circular tourist route in County Kerry, south-western Ireland. Clockwise from Killarney it follows the N71 to Kenmare, then the N70around the Iveragh Peninsula to Killorglin – passing through Sneem, Waterville, Cahersiveen, and Glenbeigh – before returning to Killarney via the N72
Waterville is a small village that sits on Ballinskelligs Bay.
Charlie Chaplin so loved the area that he and his family vacationed here every year and I totally get that! The town honors Charlie with a statue and plaque dedicated to him.
In the distance, you can see a white house sitting near the shore that is said to belong to one of Charlie Chaplin’s daughters.
The Ring of kerry lookout. Spectacular views!!
I could live here, taking in this view forever.
A Statue of Mary watches over the area.
Along our trek, we stopped at The Scarriff Inn for lunch. I had the cottage pie with salad, roll and an Irish coffee.
There were areas that we passed that had churning streams of water. The color of the water was so unique yet I could not fully capture it in a photograph. It was like a raging river of coffee!
The sky darkened and it began to pour. It was through the storm soaked window that I took one of my favorite photographs while passing a church. It stirs the imagination, begging for a caption, a mystery and a tale to be told.
Stay tuned for more of The Ring Of Kerry adventure. Always with love – Laura
