Ireland: Clouds Over Sheep’s Head Lighthouse

We had a winding drive to Sheep’s Head, the point of the peninsula. A beautiful short hike brought us to a small white lighthouse.

Home away from home: The Stepping Stone Bed & Breakfast

Those Irish people. Never in my traveler life I have met such friendly and eloquent people like here. Out of the blue you’ll start an intellectual conversation on the street while looking at some zucchini on a market stand. And all that without being intrusive or without the intention of selling something. There are many, many countries in the world who could take a leaf out of Irelands book on that issue.

We went to the Stepping Stone Bed & Breakfast because my cousin, who was already there for several times, recommended it to us. It is beautifully situated in Bridia Valley between the mountains of Kerry and you’ll get there by car or while hiking along the well indicated Kerry Way.

Sandy and John are the warmest hosts ever and they will make your stay a pure blast.

Ireland: Muckross House And Gardens And Torc Waterfall

On our second day we made a visit to fabulous Muckross House and had a long walk through the woods and to Torc Waterfalls. I don’t like guided tours but you can’t look at the house without it. The guided tour through the house we had, was very informative and our guide – Patsy – told the stories with interesting anecdotes and without any longeurs.
