The snow and ice started to get a little old by day 4. We headed to the Ring of Kerry, which had no snow in the forecast. This day turned out to be one of the nicest of the trip, and although it was windy, we got some amazing pictures. We were warned that there was ice all along the windy hills and that it was dangerous, but we decided to drive it anyway, knowing that we were at our own pace and could turn back at any time if we felt unsafe. We barely saw a single other car or tour bus out on the road the entire time. I imagined how crowded it must be during high season, and for the first time on the trip we were happy to be there in the off season. We stopped at another pub for lunch and then made it around the rest of the ring, getting back to Adare after nightfall.
Here are some pictures from the nearly deserted Ring of Kerry:
