We will be in County Kerry September 10th thru September 14th. We think we will fly from Dublin to Kerry Airport and pick up a car. The car is my husband's brilliant idea. We intend to stay in the Killarney area and take day tours and do some driving. As my Irish ancestors are from Tralee, Ardfert and buried in Ballyseedy Cemetery, so I MUST visit and explore that area - no ifs, ands or buts. All I can figure out is that the N22 goes up to Tralee. Is it a bad drive? Highway? Lots of traffic? Do the other drivers drive fast/speed? We are from SW Florida and we have some crazy drivers down here - Season is a joy. How long does it take? I'm sure we will stop off along the way and poke around the countryside. I'm nervous about driving on the "other" side of the road (oh,rest assured, I'll be the passenger!), but my husband is confident in both his ability to adapt and remember how to drive a "manual" -
I'm so excited about this portion of our trip. We originally planned on spending the majority of our trip in the Dublin area, but now think we should be spending more time in Kerry. All thoughts and ideas will be most appreciated.
