24 Hours in Killarney
A few friends and I took a last minute trip to Killarney in County Kerry, which is apparently a pretty big tourist area. After arriving pretty late at night, we went for traditional Irish food (I got beef and Guinness stew which was to die for). We stayed in a hostel called Neptune’s (which I totally recommend!) and got up crazy early on Saturday morning to get to Killarney National Park, which was absolutely beautiful. Our first stop was a waterfall pretty far into the park, and then we continued walking towards the Muckross Mansion and Abbey. I definitely feel that I’m fulfilling one of my main reasons for coming to Ireland, which was to see the beautiful landscapes I’ve always heard so much about. Once we were ready to go home, we couldn’t find the shuttle to take us back to the hostel, so we hitched a ride with a horse drawn carriage!
