Les bons plans de Conor à Dingle et Killarney

Conor finit son périple dans la magnifique péninsule de Dingle, Kerry, après un passage dans Killarney (voir mon article plus détaillé sur Killarney) J’ai regroupé ces deux articles en un pour des raisons techniques : Google n’aime pas les articles trop courts. D’où la numérotation qui ne se suit pas… 

Tip#17. Killarney town

With Killarney National Park and the nearby mountains, Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, there is much to discover in the area. Here are two favourites of mine…

(1) If you like medieval castles, Ross Castle on Lough Leane is a wonderful example of a 15thcentury Irish castle, in a sublime location. If you have kids, I can guarantee they will love it. Just note that it can get busy in July and August, so avoid the rush hour.

(2) In Killarney town, I recently discovered the wonderful Reidy’s Pub on Main St. Reidy’s is a labyrinth of different bars- with a different beer selection at each- all under the one roof, and it has a great atmosphere. It’s a really fun place to go for a drink.

Tip#23. Dingle – Dick Mack’s

Dingle village has a number of great pubs, but my personal favourite is Dick Mack’s. It’s a beautiful traditional old bar, they make their own craft beers and were even voted the best whiskey bar in Ireland in 2014. It’s a great place to spend an evening !

Tip#24. Slea Head

Slea Head is Ireland’s equivalent to the Amalfi Coast in Italy. I still remember driving it as a child, the memory is indelible. The whole Slea Head Drive is a loop of about 50 kms. Don’t drive it too quickly though. Take plenty of time to stop and savour the everchanging views.

Tip#25. The Great Blasket

The Great Blasket island is a truly magical place.  When in Kerry, it would be a great shame to miss it. The unique topology of the island, the clear green water and the seals and basking sharks. Bring a picnic, hope the weather stays dry, and spend a memorable day.
