Ring  of  kerry
Digital Day in Ireland
On April 28th, 2019,
I was one of 28 storytellers,
chosen by
Steller Stories & Tourism Ireland
to document a

My                 assignment:
Digital   Day   in   The   Life   Of   Ireland
Ring  of  Kerry
             : Irish for storyteller

Ladies     View in Killarney National Park.
The name was given in admiration of the view
by Queen Victoria’s ladies-in-waiting
during their 1861 visit.

As would be the case many times today,
I pulled over to explore the sights
and take small hikes.

This stop is in Killarney National Park.

Derrycunnihy  Church

I was on a hunt for
Derrycunnihy Falls
but only found these small falls.

Happily lost in nature.


Cahernane House Hotel in Killarney.
I stayed 2 nights for a full day in between
to explore the Ring of Kerry.
On the Ring of Kerry I go...
Driving on the left !
Mountain Stage for views
of the Dingle Peninsula
Cahergal   Stone Fort
A stone fort built around 600AD.
Impressive as it was created without mortar.
You can climb up for views of the bay.
Ballycarbery  Castle
Unplanned stop.
It’s haunting!

Daniel O’Connell Catholic Church
the only one named after a lay person.

Time to get off
the Ring of Kerry
to the Skellig Ring.

No tour buses,
so the crowds thin...
...as do the roads.

Views for days and
a look at O’Shea’s Pub,
a faux-pub used in a
Guinness commercial.
Valentia    Island
Valentia  island

Colorful fishing village and
the start point to
Skellig Michael,
a rocky island with an
abandoned 7th-century
Christian monastery.

It was a place of pilgrimage
for culture lovers and is now
even more popular thanks to
Star Wars.

The town was gearing up for
the May 4th festival.


Kerry  Cliffs
A windy & narrow two-way road
around the Skellig Ring
and then back on the
Ring of Kerry
But first....
fun on the
Lunch time
O’Carolls Cove Beach Bar
Shrimp in butter. Nothing better.
Moll’s  gap
A quick 5 minute walk off the road,
Torc waterfall is ~80 feet high and
feels like its in the middle of a fairy land.
Torc waterfall
Ross   Castle   on   Lough   Leane

Home of a 15th century
Irish Chieftain,  O'Donoghue Mór.

…which turned into a
                         stunning blue hour.

...and finally a little music in town
