Day 12: Killarney - Don't Go Chasin Waterfalls

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

It was raining pretty heavily when we woke up, so we used that time to just relax a bit and get some laundry done.  When the rain finally did clear up we went for a car ride.  We had originally planned to hike a mountain, but with the rain washing out that plan, we decided to drive to a few scenic spots instead.

We parked in front of the Aghadoe Heights Hotel and had a beautiful view of Killarney National Park.  There was an old fort there that we climbed around in for a while, and an old cemetery that we wandered through. There is something so fascinating about old cemeteries.  As creepy as they can be sometimes, I always find myself drawn to them.

From there we drove to the Torc Waterfall within the National Park.  It would have been a beautiful area to hike, but since our time was cut short due to the rain, we just parked near the waterfall and walked down to it. I'm embarrassed to say how tough that was for me.  A week and a half of pub food completely wiped out any gym progress I had made.

Bottling up the crystal clear water.
We spent the evening in the center of Killarney. We ate at another small pub and then got some ice cream, enjoying our last night in the quaint town atmosphere before heading off to the "big" city in the morning.
