Didn't make the Eireball obviously
« on: August 28, 2017, 01:01:26 PM »
Had to rearrange ferries  due to me getting an infected leg and needing IV antibiotics
Left Brighton on the 16th and did 2 nights in North Wales before getting the ferry to Dublin
Driving through Dublin in afternoon rush hour traffic on a Friday was interesting. 10 Euro for the tunnel was a bit extortionate
Stopped at Drogheda for a bite to eat and then onto Newcastle Co. Down
Amazing campsite, really clean, immaculate showers and only £25 a night including hookup http://www.murloughcottage.com/
Stayed for 4 nights and caught up with the kids in Belfast, did the Giant's Causeway as well.
Left there and headed towards Dingle, was getting late so after we'd driven through Camp and saw the Railway Tavern we ended up in Castlegregory right by the beach
25 Euro a night a bit basic but was everything we needed . Sandy Bay 2 it was called http://www.sandybay.ie/
Drove into Dingle and did the tourist boat ride. Love driving over the Conor Pass. Also did the Slea Head Drive
Started the drive back East and decided to do the Ring Of Kerry starting at Killarney and ended up doing the whole thing and onto to Tramore to catch up with Rony
Stayed an hour there eating chips and chatting with the big man and then onto Ferrybank for a short sleep and up early for the Rosslare ferry.
Stopped a night in South Wales to recuperate from the driving http://www.whitesandscamping.co.uk/
Got back in late Saturday night it was a mad 10 nights away and we're missing Ireland already
So might be looking for a house in Kerry at some point :)
I'll post pics later
