A Return to the Kingdom

Last weekend we took a trip down to Cahersiveen in County Kerry to stay for a few days with a friend and while she worked and worked, we took photos and holidayed.

Cahersiveen looking inland


Behind the blue facade lies little France in Ireland. For here we breakfasted on delicious almond and raisin croissants served with such wonderful coffee; that I half believed that I was back in La France again!

On mentioning delicious food stuffs, we also visited an independent chocolatier trading as SKELLIGS. Mrs H said that it is the best chocolate she has ever tasted and I know that she is correct. So please visit http://www.skelligschocolate.com

A beach between Waterville & Cahersiveen

A shoreline seascape typical of this area.

We cannot ignore visiting ancient wells
St Finnian's Well


Back to Mount Beentee a well named
The Well of the Fair Women
or in As Gaeilge
Tobar na mBan Fionn


Here the heavenly scents are shared!

You might like to visit Mrs H's blog and read her words on the same subject,
because I'm not feeling very wordy today :)

  5. Not much sunny weather in Co Kerry I see, but delighted you got away to such a lovely place and shared your photos. The French breakfast sound delicious.

  6. We did't mind about the cloudy sky Suzie because the weather was rain free and sufficiently warm enough for people to go swimming in the sea.
