McCarthy's chauffeurdriven vacation in the Gap of Dunloe

Eileen and Garrett were headed for the magical Gap of Dunloe today but i never expected things to turn out like this. I have always known that Kerrymen were full of what we would call "devilment", in other words, not to be trusted, but Eileen? Wow this was a surprise. Where the heck was Garrett? Forget the two in the jaunting car, and enjoy the magnificent scenery.
Maybe Garrett was in the jaunting car in front of Eileen's? The nearest animal with the white mane is definitely Eileen's horse.
Anyway, back to the main issue. The road that takes you through the wonderful Gap, leads into the Black valley, and here we are at the top of the mountains, and entering that famous doorway into the Black Valley.
Aahh haaaa...Garret is back in control of both the horse and Eileen,as you can see here.

Many people venture into the Gap of Dunloe, and miss, what to me is an essential part of this journey, the trip in the boats down through the lakes of Killarney and back to Killarney at the historic Ross castle. Here we have Garrett and Eileen all rigged out in their life jackets, and on board their boat, on the final leg of this memorable journey.Is she cold, or just repentant?
Here we have a picture of the prow of the boat as it heads for a narrow channel, one of a number of such channels as we travel from one lake into the next one.



Where did this guy come out of? Well he was there all of the time as he belongs to our boatmen.
At long last, we finally enter Lough Leane, the largest of the lakes, and the last one before we disembark at Ross Castle on the shore ahead.

Back on dry land again and the best of friends. Well they did have a great day, and it was all in great fun. The jaunting car driver was just full of that great Kerry humour and wit,and had been working at that same business for fifty years. The boatman was equally funny and friendly, and also some forty odd years at his job, so could you find better?
This has been a magical tour so far and we are all enjoying ourselves, and blessed with beautiful weather.
When are you coming to Ireland? Let me make it easy for you. Just write to me and we can begin to plan together.

Dave
