Was down in Kerry this week with family and had a wonderful greeting from Molly the households pet pig. Really made it clear we were now in the country! Ha.
Arrived Tuesday night and was of course offered an abundance of tea, apple crumble & wine. Sat around chatting before bed to rest up for the next days activities. Wednesday we went to see the Skelligs but sadly only 2 out of the 4 of us could fit on the boat. My cousin Cliff and I were lucky to get the seats since the others had seen it before and fugging hell was it incredible.
In a nutshell the Skellig Islands are together a world heritage site famous for their thriving gannet and puffin populations, and for an early Christian monastery located at the very top. The steps to the top are steep, dangerous and awesome! Once in the monastery you get to chill out with the view of Kerry on one side and the wide open Atlantic ocean on the other. If your around it’s definitely worth the visit.
After the Skelligs we had lunch and drove around the ring of Kerry. I’m sure it was beautiful but to be honest I fell asleep… to be fair though, I had just done one hell of a stairmaster workout! Ha!
Great few days and got to finish my book guilt free on the train trip down :)
Back at the desk now to catch up on all admin milarky!
Until next time,
