Deb are you still in Ireland? Last year I stayed in killarny for two weeks. Be sure you go to the ladies view and to Molly Gallivan's cottage. Both are not to far away - ask about Thursday nights at mollies- it was a great experience. I wish I was home so I could give you more complete information. Did you go to the falls in the national park? We traveled 2500 miles in our rental car. We loved northern Ireland too. #8661329
