Exploring the Ring of Kerry

Last weekend, I went to County Kerry with one of my friend. We wanted to discover the famous Ring of Kerry, part of the Wild Atlantic Way! On Friday night we took the Dublin coach to Killarney and we have joined another friend that was already there. We rented a car and we went to discover this County on Saturday morning. We first stopped in the Killarney National Park with the Muckross House and beautiful park. Then, we went to Torc Waterfall, a famous place to visit. After a heavy rain the day before, the waterfall was even more beautiful!

Discovering Dublin pubs

Last Saturday night, I visited few Dublin pubs with my friends. We all wanted to discover some traditional and typical Irish pubs with traditional music, food and drinks obviously!

Our first pub was the O’Neills Pub, close to the Statue of Molly Malone. This is a really big pub. After a few minutes going upstairs and downstairs, we finally found a free table (it was quite difficult!) where I tasted the famous and excellent Guinness.
