Killarney Here We Come!

On our way to Killarney, we realized we were getting really hungry but didnâ€™t want to stop to eat at a restaurant due to time constraints, so we stopped at a gas station and grabbed some goods.
I went for a pack of nuts and hazelnut yogurt. You canâ€™t get hazelnut yogurt in the
Angie on the other hand went for a soda and a bag of popcorn. I love shopping in other countries just to see the packaging and the different treats that the country offers.
For the next five minutes we sat in the car taking random photos of us with the popcorn in seductive/cheesy poses. Why? Because it was there and our parents would be proud...or something. Angie didnâ€™t finish the bag and it ended up all over the backseat floor, so we had the pleasure of having popcorn with us the rest of the trip. Yep, it defiantly brought us pleasure as we would laugh everytime we saw the kernels on the floor.
I have to say the one thing of many that I love about
As we continued our drive we noticed how it was progressively getting greener.
It was a little late by the time we got to Killarney, but we still had plenty of time to walk around as it was busy way into the night. This was a hopping little town. The woman at the B&B suggested a restaurant that we might like. We originally wanted to eat at the Indian place that we found, but they only took reservations there and it would be a 40 minute wait. Forget that, we were hungry; Popcorn Pleasure wasnâ€™t enough to keep us satisfied I am sorry to say.
Dinner was alright, the waitress was very nice, but my dish wasnâ€™t what I expected (my fault I fear).
After dinner we walked around some more. There was a cool club in the town, but my stomach was killing me and we were pretty tired at this point. That and we had a full day planned for the following day.
So early the next day, we headed down the road to The Kennedy Farm in Killarney. I had been looking forward to this for weeks, I wonâ€™t lie. If you find yourself in Killarney and you love animals, go! I am not even kidding! This is in my top three favorite things that I did in
It turns out that you can stay on the premises of the farm much like any other B&B in
First off the land it is on is just beautiful and peaceful and the animals are just adorable. We went during the right time as there were babies everywhere! In fact a baby lamb had been born the night before. There were puppies, piglets, chicks and guinea pigs everywhere. On the farm you are allowed to pet almost all of the animals, but a lot of them are very shy, though there was the kick butt deer named Bambi who followed us around everywhere and couldnâ€™t get enough love.
Later on in the day there were children everywhere and the whole farm came alive. I was glad we showed up early as we had the whole farm to ourselves, but it was so fun to see the children running around and having such a great time. This seriously was a special place and I couldnâ€™t get the smile off of my face.
I really didnâ€™t want to leave, but we knew we needed to get going if we were to see anything else in Killarney and beyond so from the Pet Farm, we headed back on to the road and headed towards the Ring of Kerry. It sounds so ominousâ€¦
