Kerry The Tourism Hub Of Ireland | Wild Atlantic Way

Kerry boasts some of the most stunning coastal scenery along the Wild Atlantic Way. They discovered tourism in Kerry, did you know that? It all started with a visit by Queen Victoria in 1861, which was widely reported and photographed by the media, such as it was at the time.

County Kerry – Still as popular today

This led to an influx of mainly English visitors keen to follow in the footsteps of her ladies in waiting who named the famous view at the top of Moll’s Gap down over the Lakes of Killarney. This was followed swiftly by Americans who were romanced by movies such as the Quiet Man and Ryan’s Daughter, both were wildly dramatic, exaggerated tales of love and loss, you know the story, however in both cases it was the scenery that stole the show. This Inspired hundreds and thousands of Americans ever since to retrace their emigrant roots and experience the land of their ancestors birth so beautifully depicted in glorious cinematic, technicolor.

The Ring of Kerry was developed as a circular touring route of 324km which can easily be accomplished in a day if you get up early. Independent travelers would be better to split it into two days and enjoy it at a more leisurely pace. Dingle too, is on every tourists bucket list with Slea Head at the top. It truly is a beautiful drive but very busy in high season, so either get up and go really early or break the journey with a trip out out to the Great Blasket from Dun Chaoin or a visit to the interpretative centre there. You can continue on towards Clogher and Smerwick harbour for more magnificent view or take the shortcut back through the mountains back to Dingle town. Here you can take a boat trip out to harbour mouth to visit Fungi our resident dolphin for more than 40 years now, God Bless him.

Danabel Porridge Bread Recipe

I started making my Porridge Bread about a year ago. It was so popular with guests that I carried on making it. Now, I make it everyday and leave it on the breakfast table for my guests to help themselves. I am always complimented on how tasty it is. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to prepare, yet so delicious!
