Having a healthy snack at Moll's Gap at the top of the mountains. Things like chocolate cake, carrot cake, Banoffi pie and Pavlova with fresh cream. Irish calories are really good for you....the more the merrier.
When we had come back down rom the mountains and into the Killarney National Forest Park we visited Muchross House Estate wherw Queen Victoria stayed during her visit to Killarney. Here we began out tour of the farmhouses, the old restored dwellings common to Irish farmers back in the early nineteen hundreds. Here we have the girls ready to board the bus which takes you from house to house on the circuit. This is a really lovely tour.
