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.From Sneem we drove through the Ballighbeama Gap and Glencar Highlands of Kerry.Our GPS told us this twisty and narrow road was ‘unnamed’. The landscape was very rocky and oh so green.The unnamed road we were on is the one leading up to the centre of the map. We turned right and followed along another nameless road that skirted MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, eventually turning onto R562 to arrive at Killarney. Another green and rocky place.A shroud-covered mountain just after our Glencar stop.Out of the mountains and nearing Killarney National Park…After spending time in Killarney National Park, we drove to the Beara Peninsula, ending up in evening in Castletownbere.
That is a scenic road. Great photos! The last one is my favorite. 🙂
From our trip it seems all the roads in Ireland are scenic; especially the narrow twisty ones!
I agree. We visited part of the Ireland last year. We loved what we saw. 🙂
Such a beautiful country Elizabeth, you’ve captured some wonderful scenes
A wonderful trip – Irish countryside is gorgeous!

What an incredible landscape along the unnamed road!
Despite all the comfort and navigation devices of the modern world, I always feel like I’m part of some old-time exploration party whenever I’m on an ‘unnamed’ road!
Agreed! It makes it feel like more of an adventure. 🙂
