‘Kerry’s Most Spectacular Cliffs’, Ireland

October 6, afternoon. 

This afternoon we continued around the Ring of Kerry stopping at ‘Kerry’s Most Spectacular Cliffs’ before we headed into the charming small town of Sneem for the evening

After our detour around the Ring of Skellig it was back to Portmagee where a boarded-up building made vibrant with painted flowers and false windows caught my eye.

These waterproof stone huts were used for habitation up until the Early Middle Ages when pilgrims and monks were visiting Skellig Michael, a monastery on an island off the wild west coast of Ireland. I think there is a ferry there from Portmagee but we missed it on this trip. Old stone farm buildings at to 'Kerry's Most Spectacular Cliffs' in IrelandSign leading to 'Kerry's Most Spectacular Cliffs' in Ireland
