Into the Glencar Highlands and on to Killarney, Ireland

October 7, 2015, morning. 

This morning we drove from Sneem through the rugged scenery of Ballighbeama Gap and the Glencar Highlands on our way to Killarney National Park.

At Kelly’s Bakery in Sneem we paid 10€ for a fine breakfast.Kelly's Bakery for an excellent breakfast in Sneem, IrelandFrom Sneem we drove through the Ballighbeama Gap and Glencar Highlands of Kerry.Drive through the green rocky Ballighbeama Gap to Killarney National Park, IrelandOur GPS told us this twisty and narrow road was ‘unnamed’.
