We head over to the Ring of Kerry, a large peninsula in Southern Ireland. On the way, we stop at Jameson whiskey distillery on the way .
We get a full tour of the old distillery.
It is not used any more because Jameson has a big mega size distillery in Cork. The whiskey making process is pretty much the same process used by distillers in Scotland, but at Jameson the whiskey is distilled 3 times to get a more pure Whiskey flavor. The distillery is a little “touristy”.
After the tour of Jameson we continue are drive towards the Ring of Kerry. Upon arriving we decide to drive a portion of the loop of the peninsula immediately because according to the weather report it will be raining the next day. So the plan is to drive 1/2 the loop with sunshine.
The drive is amazing and includes views of several small little islands scattered along the coastline.
We stop at Portmagee and go to the “Moorings,” a small Restaurant over looking the harbor, for dinner. We order a fish and chips, a cod with a creamy white sauce, and trout. The fish pulled out of the water this morning, and it was fresh and tasty. 😀
After dinner we go back out to the car and get some sleep;) Zzzzzzzz
