Some friends came to visit and we took the opportunity to explore the Southwest of Ireland a little bit more.  Me, Erin, Emily, (y)Emily, and Dan took to the road with our first stop Cahersiveen.  We stopped along the way and saw some spectacular sights.


Cahersiveen was a great little town on the Ring of Kerry which was touristy but not excessively so.  We rented bikes the second day we were there and toured Valentia island.  We took the ferry to get there and had terrific weather and spectacular views.


Including great views of the Skelligs Islands.


The next morning we went to Ballycarbery Castle.  Built in the 16th century, it is in a perfect state of ruin.


We then headed over to Cahergall Stone fort which dates from 600AD.
