I am a single, older woman who will be spending 3 nights in August in Ballydavid leaving on
a Monday. Shopping, the city, crowded buses do not interest me (Well, maybe Murphy's
ice cream)and don't drink but history, ruins, hiking (up to 7 mi), music and photography do. I would not be comfortable renting a car/driving which I know will be limiting and this is the first time that I have ever done so. Will be dropped off by my son and family (homeward bound) and then take bus to Killarney for the National Park, BusEireann, for 3 nights and then bus to Kenmare. I am comfortable hiking alone but because of injury and safety know I should not.
I would like suggestions for my time: are taxis/shuttles available for pickup and return, small hiking group tours or suggestions on local people available to guide, small tours around esp, Slea Head, etc. Have read extensively on the forum and picked up suggestions but would like the very knowledgeable advice of the forum contributors.
