Tuesday, June 17th
Had a quick breakfast and drove back to through Cork. Drove to Macroom and took a rest stop and enjoyed the local castle and river.
We drove next to Killorgin, where they hold the Puck Fair, one of Ireland's oldest and most unusual festivals. Next we got off the beaten path in search of
Caragh Lake. It took us forever to find. We also found our first of many peat bogs. We also came around a corner and almost hit a little old man standing
in the middle of the road.
Next we set off to drive the 120 mile loop called the Ring of Kerry. The weather turned and we had showers off and on all day, especially toward the end
of the day. This took away from some of the pictures, but it was still pretty neat. One of the first stops we made was at Staigue Ring Fort. Drove through
Glenbeigh and Waterville and our last stop along the loop was at Cahergal Ring Fort on our way to Kenmare for the night. We were very tired and quickly
found our hotel and some dinner.
We stayed at the Lansdowne Arms Hotel on the main street. I think I walked to every restaurant in town before deciding on
where to eat that night.
