We walked for miles enjoying the peace and tranquillity as there were few people about. The weather cleared and the sun came out briefly and then the horses appeared….wow!
What an experience to canter along a stunning beach with the wind in your hair and the spray of the sea on your face. 🐎🐴
After our walk we drove to Tralee , a town in Co Kerry famous for the Rose of Tralee Festival. Driving through I was surprised to see a windmill (having just come back from Amsterdam). It is called Blennerville Windmill and was built by Sir Rowland Blennerhassett in 1800 whom the village of Blennerville is named after.
Back on the Ring of Kerry again I headed off into the hills, rallying round the narrow roads, finally stopping on top of one of the mountains where I cooked lunch ‘Bear Grylls’ style.
Heading back to Glenbeigh I stopped at the Kerry Bog Village , another tourist attraction along the way. This is a replica of a typical village showing how people lived and worked in Ireland in the 18th-19th century and how they suffered during the Famine and were evicted from their homes. Many left Ireland for foreign lands never to arrive at their destinations! A very real but horrific part of Irish history.
