We arrived in Killarney early enough to get checked into our hotel and take off for a bit of exploring before sunset - enough time to see Torc Waterfall in the Killarney National Forest and Ross Castle on Lough Leane, the largest of three lakes in the area.
Driving Shoes Off – Hiking Shoes On
As thankful as I was to arrive at our hotel and be done with the day’s driving, we opted to do just a bit more to enjoy the remaining hours of sunlight.
We got checked into our room and headed a short way down the road into Killarney National Forest to do the short hike to Torc Waterfall. Thankfully, the roads in this area were actually wide enough to easy support two-way traffic (in most areas), and there was less rain. We were feeling downright spoiled!
