Ross Castle, Killarney

Standard

We are now down in Killarney, near what would be considered the start of the Ring of Kerry. Killarney is a bustling and vibrant little town, and lucky for us it is right in the heart of a whole ton of beauty. The Killarney National Park is our next destination, but before we really get started exploring, here’s a quiet scene we experienced first thing one morning.

Built in the fifteenth century by the O’Donoghue chieftains, Ross Castle overlooks Lough Leane in Killarney, County Kerry. We spent a very still and peaceful morning here admiring the view and enjoying the early light. The story is that Brian Boru, High King of Ireland, was educated by monks in the ninth century on the island of Innisfallen, which you can access by boat from the shores of the lake here.

Soooooooo quiet…
