Road-trip to the South coast (of Ireland) - 2

After a quick lunch in Skibbereen (see the first part), we kept going on road R592 towards Mizen Head. This destination, the southernmost point of Ireland, was a bit of an anti-climax, because of the weather and the fact that we would have had to pay to access the best view point. The coast road, however, was really nice, and we even stopped at a very sunny beach near Crookhaven.




We stayed quite a while enjoying the warm weather on the beach, and after that, it was time to go North to Kenmare (R591, and then N71). Just before arriving, the changing weather provided an amazing light on the moutains near Mt Coomnadiha. Not surprisingly, by the time we reached our B&B just outside Kenmare, the sun was shining again, to make the view on the river, from the bedroom, even nicer.






The next morning we drove back to Dublin through Killarney and Limerick...

That was a lovely road trip, a bit tiring but it was totally worth it! :)
