This was actually our first early morning photo expedition, and despite the challenge that a 5:30am wake up call posed, we forged ahead knowing full well that the plan included a return to the hotel by about 9:00am for a full Irish breakfast.
Killarney National Park is a jewel of a place, with beauty and grandeur waiting around every corner. It reminded me somewhat of our home national park of Acadia, in that there is a similar picturesque road that offers many places to stop and enjoy the wonderful scenery.
Though the weather in mid-March was unseasonably warm and pleasant, as you can see from the photographs in this post, the greens that this part of Ireland is famous for hadn’t yet come into their own. Stunning scenery all the same on our early morning jaunt… and did I mention that full Irish breakfast?
