Great Craic in Kerry

The other day me and my humans and our friend Nigel went on a wee holiday in the south-west of Ireland in County Kerry.  We stayed in a cottage in a place called Caherdaniel on the Ring of Kerry.  It was very close to the sea, so we went to the beach every day.  I loved that!  It was very windy for the first few days, but I didn't mind as long as I could run around on the beach.

This was on a beach a called Derrynane Beach which was very close to where we stayed.  There was also an island you could walk over to with the ruin of an old abbey and a wood we went for a walk in.

We went for a drive around the Iveragh Peninsula as well and saw a lot of lovely places such as another old abbey in Ballinskellig:

 Views of the Skellig Rocks out in the ocean:

The Kerry Cliffs:

And some cliffs on an island called Valentia (I expected it to be warmer and sunnier in Valentia...)

Back at the cottage the views changed every day, sometimes rainbows, sometimes lovely sunsets.

We visited 2 other peninsulas while we were too, but I'll tell you about that next time

Muddy in Loughrea

The other day I went to the west of Ireland with one of my humans and our friend Maureen to a place near Loughrea in County Galway.  We went to visit another friend called Mark Boyle, who apparently is famous for being the 'Moneyless Man'.  I don't know what is so special about that, I have never had any money myself and I am almost 7 years old!  Also you can't even eat money...  Now he does have money though and a lovely house and a big, muddy garden.  Instead he has now given up computers and telephones (which I still don't think is very special... I only use the computer to write this blog)

He doesn't live in the big house though, but in this small one:

One day we went for a nice walk through the woods with lots of other doggies, which was fun.  There we discovered the ruin of a very big house, which used to belong to an English landlord, who the locals didn't like much.  So they burned his house:

At night we stayed in this house that used to be an old pig barn and is called the Happy Pig.  I wasn't allowed to sleep on the nice comfy sofas though because I got so muddy playing outside.  I was a wee bit upset about that.
