Day 4 – Tuesday 11th July
Headed of to Killarney this morning to meet up with a friend from Cork. We met up in Killarney town then took a drive out to Torc Waterfall a waterfall based at the foot of the Torc mountain about 5 miles outside Killarney and encompassed in the Killarney National Park
We then headed to Muckross House a 19th century mansion in Killarney National Park.
We had a delicious lunch in the restaurant before taking a trip out across the lakes of Killarney in a motor boat to Dinis cafe for a coffee. I would highly recommend the boat trip as at only €10 per person it was well worth it. Be warned though if it is a wet day (which is 90% of the time) you will get soaked as these are open boats!! And you will of course have to wear the beautiful orange jacket that you are offered 😉😅
Thunder thoroughly enjoyed her boat trip despite her earlier reservations about stepping aboard.
En route back to my base in Glenbeigh I stopped off at Glencar which is a nature lover’s paradise. It is situated just above Caragh Lake and river, beside Lickeen Wood
