Went to Ireland over the 4 day weekend in February. Both Pam's birthday and valentines day. Flew directly into Kerry. Rented a car about the size of a shoebox and spent a few minutes driving around the parking lot trying to get used to the steering wheel being on the right. Found driving on the left side of the road easier than I thought. Drove out the Dingle penninsula to find a B&B which I had tried to make reservations with. Found the B&B but no answer at the door. Talked to some people in the village and found that since it was the off season, not much was open. it was recommended that we drive over Connor pass into the village of Dingle where we were assured much more would be open. Connor proved to be a very windng narrow road, but the view is fantastic. Stopped at the top and hiked up a few hundred yards to find a crystalline lake and an even more fantatic view. Made our way into Dingle and found it very accomodating. Picture perfect Irish village with very friendly people. Next day drove to Slaugh Head, and saw about a million sheep and fantastic coastline scenery. Next day to Killarney. had to find a internet cafe to catch the result of the Avs-Red Wings game (Avs won). Did some shopping had a few pints and headed back along the cowtrail roadways to Dingle. Up early the next morning to ctch the flight back to Frankfurt. Great trip, looking forward to getting back there again.Starting Over...Again
