Chauffeurdriven tours of Ring of Kerry and Dingle with Dave Hogan

Today (Sunday) we toured the famous "Ring of Kerry" in rather damp conditions. My friends were in top form and not in the least put out by the rain. As it is still early in the year, we had the place virtually to ourselves, and that was an added bonus.
Daniel O'Connell, known as the Liberator", was a famous Irish politician who fought for Catholic Emancipation and helped to gain many new privileges for the Catholic population. He was born in the Caherciveen area on the Ring, and was indeed one of the greatest Irish politicians of all time  in the British Parliament.




Here we have a photo of the ruins of Daniel's home on the outskirts of Caherciveen.
St Brendan the Navigator was another famous man who spent a lot of time on the Kerry peninsulas. Here we have Therese, pictured with the monument depicting this famous saint and voyager, once again on the outskirts of Caherciveen.



The famous Charlie Chaplin spent many happy holidays here in Waterville, and this statue was erected in his honour. Here we have Henry, pictured posing with Charlie. Henry is the one on the left.
Henry and Therese, pictured on the bridge above the river in Sneem, on the Ring. Please note the umbrella. I posted this picture for all of those people who claim that it never rains in Ireland. If you happen to be one of them....please note once again .....the umbrella.



Ladies View is one of the great attractions on the Ring, and it was here that Queen Victoria stood with her handmaidens,and proclaimed it to be "The Most Beautiful View in the Kingdom" I would have to agree that the view does appear more attractive when you can see it clearly.

Torc Waterfall is also another very popular attraction and is located at the end of the Ring just on the outskirts of Killarney.
Muckross House, that beautiful old stately home on the outskirts of Killarney, was where Queen Victoria stayed during her visit here. Henry wanted to book i, as he wanted to treat Therese on what was "Mother's Day "here in Ireland today, but they informed him that there was no residential element to this place and it was purely a visitor touring centre. Henry finally accepted this and left quietly.
For all of my friends in the USA....please note that "Mother's Day is on the 6th March. Please get it right. Also, have you decided to drive on the correct side of the road yet? Please let me know as i wish to visit there sometime.
See you soon.

If you need me, just send me a message, and we can take it from there,
