Coming ‘Round the Bend

IMG_3348One of my favorite things about traveling in Ireland is the wonderful towns and villages.  You come around the bend, and presto!  A whole town of brightly painted buildings with shops, pubs and groceries to explore.  This is Portmagee, a great little town in Kerry that we used as our home base for 3 weeks.  Portmagee is the place to catch a boat tour out to the Skelligs, has some great little pubs/cafes, and a tiny but efficiently stocked grocery.

IMG_3347We would walk down to the village some days, buy some groceries, and the kids would undoubtedly get a “99”, a delectable soft ice cream cone with a Flake bar stuck in the top for the walk home.  By the end of the three weeks, we felt like it was a home away from home, and we were sad to see it fade in our rear-view mirrors.

Enjoy your little village today; big or small.  Slainte, Lisa

    • That’s awesome…did you eat at the Bridge Bar Pub, or the little sandwich shop? They also have a Fisherman’s Wharf Pub, but nobody was ever in there, so we never ate there. 🙂

I welcome your thoughts...
