This week’s newsletter is a quick catchup on what we have been doing and where we have been going, and it is a good one as we may have just found our favourite place in Ireland so far!


So let’s get stuck into a month of driving along the breathtaking Wild Atlantic Way!

Exploring the Ring of Kerry


Our adventures this week began by touring the famous Ring of Kerry, apparently one of Ireland’s most beautiful regions – which turned out to be very true!


From towering cliffs and breathtaking beaches to delicious treats along the way, it quickly became obvious just why the Ring of Kerry is such a popular spot in Ireland. We particularly enjoyed our visit to Skelligs Chocolate factory, which serves us incredible hot chocolates, as well as lets you taste their own concoctions of chocolate bars FOR FREE.


We also enjoyed our visit to the stunning Kerry cliffs, a set of sea cliffs that stretch to 300ft above the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean. As it was much cheaper and much quieter that the Cliffs of Moher, we definitely preferred these cliffs to their famous counterparts that lie further to the north.


As the Ring of Kerry is such a popular tourist spot, however, we were keen to move on to quieter avenues to explore and so we quickly waved goodbye to this region of Ireland and moved further south to the Beara Peninsula – or as we would soon come to call it “The Wester Ross of Ireland”.

The Most Beautiful Place in Ireland 

As we have began our journey south through the Killarney National Park, we began to realise just how much of a treat we were in for. The landscape quickly turned from rolling green hills and cloud topped mountains, to a dramatic mixture of towering peaks and deep, deep lochs, views that would rival that of the Isle of Skye.


We continued south onto the lesser-known Beara Peninsula and were soon lost for words at the beauty that lay in wait for us here.


Winding roads led us up and over the shoulders of sleeping giants, zig-zagging their way up and over landscapes that should with all reason be completely unaccessible.


In particular, the road known as the Healy Pass now sits high on our list as being one of the most beautiful drives in the world. Driving from south to north, the hair pin bends that lead up the mountain are a treat for any driver, as the roads are still wide enough to allow for more traffic than we encountered along the way.


Once at the top, the view from back down the glen and the spaghetti of asphalt that brought you to the top is mind-blowing, and yet that is still just the start..


Continuing along the road, you soon emerge through Healy’s Pass to the other side of the mountain with a deep glen sitting before you, at the bottom of which sits the tranquil Glanmore Lough. It is a scene that I only thought possible in fairytale and fantasy books. One of pure and absolute beauty.


Why Are We Here?!


Aside from the pure thrill of the open road and the beauty that lies here to be discovered, we are actually here for a very exciting reason, which we are chipping away at and are very close to officially launching.


That is, of course, our next installation of Destination Earth, our full and complete guide to the Wild Atlantic Way – Destination Atlantic Way.

We have been working away on this for almost a year now behind the scenes and this trip has been the perfect chance to get the finishing touches and final photos that we require for the final draft. We will be announcing the launch very soon so if you are interested then definitely keep your eyes peeled for an email (as it may just come with a nice little discount as well..).
