Grant to the Gap of Dunloe

Today my friends were off to the wonderful Gap of Dunloe, as our mild and dry weather continued.
The Gap of Dunloe tour, which i supply for my clients, is, firstly, a journey on the horse drawn jaunting cars up the winding Gap road to the top of the mountain, and then down the other side to the lakes of Killarney. Then there is a snack break at Lord Brandon's cottage, before boarding the small boats, which then take you down through the lakes of Killarney, and back to the magnificent Ross castle on the shores of Lough Laune, where your tour ends. This is a once in a lifetime experience, and a very special one.

 Nearing the end of this awesome journey.
 Jim and Ilene, arriving at the pier at the end of their journey.
 Ilene and Jim, furthest to the right, smiling up at me, as i snap this picture.
And now, finally ashore, and on dry land once again, with the beautiful Ross castle in the background.

Bet you would like to experience this tour, and why not?
I am already taking tours for next year, but there is still time this year, if you have the time.
No harm in enquiring. Drop me a line, and maybe we can do something for you.

Grants to Dingle July 2018.

Today our weather was once again really nice as we began our journey to the Dingle peninsula this morning.

 Ilene and Jim, pictured together this morning at Inch as we made our way to Dingle town.
 Another lovely picture with the picturesque hillsides in the background.
 A big moment for Ilene as she cuddles her lamb near Slea Head.
 Here we have Ilene and Jim at the beehive huts near Slea Head.

A picture of the main Blasket, now abandoned since back in the nineteen hundreds, when the majority of the remaining people left for Springfield Mass.

The Conor Pass, high in the mountains above Dingle town, a place to visit where you can enjoy fabulous views of both sides of the peninsula.
