Down to the Dunboy Castle which took a bit of getting to due to heavy earth-moving equipment blocking the track in. They were working on the ruined mansion. The castle was little more than foundations and part walls.
On to Eyeries and Ardgroom; the latter with a sign to a stone ring off the main road but not on the smaller roads, so we gave up and moved on. Just before Lauragh we found another sign to Cashelkeelty Stone Circles
We had lunch at our roadside park before moving on to Kenmare and the Ring of Kerry to Sneem and castle Cove. At the latter we found a stone fortress; Staigue, which appears to have been occupied a few hundred years BC and probably by a chiefton. Back home, stopping for tea at Glengarriff. The girls had Irish Stew and Austin had Roast Beef and vegetables - all very nice and tender. Finished the night with a cuppa and packing for our departure next day.
