Day 9 – Driving to Dingle

by Jenn

Not many stops today so far today – just got into Vantry where we had to be reaccomodated at another b&b due to a family loss.  I much appreciate the fact that the arrangements were made for us and we weren’t left trying to figure it out on our own.  I think the plan is to go drive the peninsula next since we have so much of the day left.  We started this morning by driving down through Limerick and to the small town of Adare.  We walked the town to see the thatched roof cottages and found the McNeil coat of arms inside the heritage shop.  From there we drove to Ballyseede Castle – a small place off the side of the highway where one can stay if you please.  We only took a few photos before heading into the town of Tralee for our 2nd McDonald’s meal. =P  They have better food here than in the states.

Jeff is giving me a massage now to help with all the driving.  Here are the few photos we have taken so far:
