On our 2nd full day in Killarney we took in the Ring of Kerry by tour bus. The countryside, mountains, views of bays, islands and fingers of land jutting into the sea were spectacular. Bright red fuchsia lines the roads on both sides and yellow gorse dot the hillsides along with the sheep. Sheep were a highlight this day; we stopped at a sheep farm where the owner showed us a dozen varieties of the animals and ordered his well-trained sheep dogs by whistle and word to round up a flock on the mountainside.
