Ladies View, Killarney

No this not a postcard. This is the view from what is known a Ladies View, In Killarney. It is one of the most amazing places I have ever been to in my life.

People say Ireland can be expensive – well this is as easy as a picnic, if you chose to do it that way and it is one of the few things in this country that the government cannot put a tax upon. Personally, I would [and will] sit looking at this for days.

I made it here because I took the road less travelled. I got lost, intentionally – and was so happy that I did. From Killarney town it took me approximately 4 hours in total to get to Macroom in Cork. To put in context it only took me about one hour on the way over 😉 The reason it took so long is that I stopped everywhere.

To be honest I found it hard trying to pick out just one photograph of my journey. I will go back. Sooner than I thought. When you do – don’t bring a sat nav. You’ll thanks me for it. I promise. Instead swap it for a poetry book.

    Absolutely gorgeous!! I’ve only been to Ireland twice, but one day my friend took me on back roads to amazing places like this and how I treasure the memory. 🙂 Thanks for posting these wonderful shots!

    Hi Krista,
    do you know where in Ireland the back roads where – either or you need to come back 😀

    Thanks Yvonne – really appreciate and it is a really amazing spot. I hope I can find decent camping near-ish there now

    A Chara Krista,

    a beautiful part of town 😀 A little bit different to Killarney, but in saying that a part of Ireland I love dearly and have visited many times. Used to go camping there when I was younger!
    Another on my list that I need to get back to 😉

    What a splendid spot to go camping!! It would be perfect. 🙂 I’ve never been to Killarney, but after your photos I simply must! I have to be in England for business in a few months, so perhaps I can extend my stay a bit, drag one of my brothers along with me, and go exploring in Killarney. 🙂
