I arrived in Dublin on Thursday and enjoyed the day traveling through the southern-midsection of Ireland to the coastal town of Ballybunion, where I stayed for two days and toured County Kerry.

The Dingle Peninsula is the northernmost of the major peninsulas in County Kerry & extends beyond the town of Dingle and also is the westernmost point in Ireland and it is said that the next parish over is in the United States.


The Geraldine family, the surname derived from the Fitzgerald Norman dynasty that settled in and occupied Munster province, constructed Geraldine Castle in the 14th Century in Ballybunion, coastal town in County Kerry.

The cliffs of Ballybunion were located just below the bed and breakfast hotel I stayed at and the crisp ocean breezes were very pleasant.

There is a route that can be used in traveling a circle around the Dingle Peninsula, starting out and ending at the town of Dingle, just below and west of Tralee and I enjoyed the scenery although I did get lost several times. The scenery was most beautiful, with several interesting historical sites to visit along the route.
