Day 12 – Killarney National Park via Bike

by Jenn

We happily slept in this morning before starting our short, 30km, drive to Kenmare,  Breakfast was a traditional Irish one and tasty as usual.  Because of our taking advantage of good weather in the past few days, we were ahead of schedule so went back to Killarney National Park to see more, this time via Bicycle.

After renting two bikes on the main road, we cycled down the street a ways then into the park for the one way journey around the perimeter of Muckross lake.  Although it rained on us a bit, the sun was mostly shinning and we had stunning views.

After stopping at Dinis Cottage for coffee and cake, we rode past Muckross House to the Abbey and then back toward town to end our journey.  The 15 kilometers did make us a bit sore, but it was a ton of fun.  After that we drove to a few viewpoints, a church and an ancient stone circle on the way to the B&B, a cute one with a comfy bed that I am resting in now.

Here are some photos from our journey today:
