Kinsale to the Ring of Kerry – across the South of Ireland

It rained and blew pretty much all day today as we drove from Kinsale to the southwest corner of Ireland. We are staying at a B and B in Cahersiveen on the Ring of Kerry.

Near Kinsale we stopped at the Old Head Signal Tower. It is one of 82 signal towers built along the Irish coast in the early 1800s. The tower was recently restored. It includes a museum about the Lusitania. A German U-boat sank the Lusitania ten miles off the coast from the Old Head at the beginning of World War I.

For dinner we had fish at a bar called The Point at the ferry landing just down the road from where we are staying.
