Parknasilla is Fabulous

Kerry again.  Just wow!  At the beginning of the month it was a trip to Dingle and last weekend I enjoyed another stay in the Kingdom of Kerry, this time at Parknasilla.  There’s a family of politicians that hale from that part of the country – the ‘Healy Rae’s’ and as we drove through Kilgarvan – their locality – I could understand why they always sound so up-beat.  It’s beautiful.  No matter what topic they’re covering they speak in musical tones with a charming lilt, so even if they’re complaining they still manage to sound happy about it.  The roads – thanks in no small part to the Healy Rae’s I believe – are in great condition, so even though they may at times seem endlessly winding and a little on the narrow side they feel safe.  The drive is also enchantingly beautiful especially at this time of the year as the hedgerows are generously carpeted with vibrant purple rhododendrons.

Parknasilla resort is a wonderful hideaway of a place.  So much space, so much to do and explore and so many places just to sit and relax and do nothing.  Bliss. I recommend.

Here’s a few snaps from my stay.
