Much to our disappointment we woke up to rain, hard rain. After yesterdays clear skies we were hoping for another day of perfect weather to explore the Kerry and Dingle Penninsulas. Did the Ring of Kerry, a spectacular drive through the mountains and along the coast of the Killarney National Park on the Kerry Penninsula, in the rain. The rain couldn't spoil the drive, I can only imagine how amazing it would be on a sunny day. As we finnished the Ring of Kerry and were approaching the village of Dingle the sun came out.
Out of Dingle we took the Slea Head Road, another loop road around the end of the Dingle Penninsula that is rumored to be even better than the Ring of Kerry. The rumors were right. This is some of the most spectacular coastline I've ever seen. Dramatic cliffs, pounding surf, quaint villages, and green hills were just the start.
After returning to Dingle we decided to cover some miles and drove to Limerick in the dark. Had dinner at the "Texas Steak House" whcih was recommended by the hostel manager. Surprisingly I had a decent fajita dinner.
