Introduction

October 4, 2001
I Spent the last days of our trip in Killarney exploring the Killarney National Park and a bit of the surrounding area. Today, we took the bus back to Dublin...a six-hour trip that wiped us out. Tomorrow morning, I leave to get home to Seattle...although when we checked in at the Globetrotters Hostel in Dublin, the man behind the counter thought that British Midlands might have folded due to the WTC tragedy and the airline freeze that resulted.

Tuesday, we got up bit later than we had hoped...we did manage to go to about 5 pubs the night before looking for some good music. Of course, we had at least a pint at each so the night was also a little longer than expected.

We rented some bikes and biked down to the remains of Muck Ross Abbey, an old Franciscan friary. It was surrounded by a graveyard that was still in use. The abbey itself was pretty amazing as we were able to explore it, walking up to different rooms and hallways.

Conclusion

We met an Aussie couple and a German couple on the boat ride who we caught up to all along the route and at the bottom of the Gap, we ended up sharing a pint with the Aussie Couple at Kate Kearney's Cottage before heading back to Killarney. Treated ourselves to an Indian "take-away" meal and hung out at the hostel reading and chatting with the other guests. When Pa (the Sugan Hostel's host) got back from his nightly show, he greeted us all and then picked up a guitar and told us he'd play us a song that a friend of his wrote after breaking up with a long time girlfriend...proving again that he is a good entertainer and host! He got up and put the gutar away three more times, claiming that each additional song he played would be his last. Finally he handed the guitar over to Eugene (a guest from Brisbane) for a try on the guitar. What a way to end our time in Killarney and my time in Ireland for that matter!!
