Bantry House & Gardens
Hello and good morning to all!
I'm sorry,you didn't see coments from me last week,,but i have good excuse.We were for little holidays.Went out last Thursday,and come back yesterday at tea time.First we went to Co.Cork,then Co.Kerry.We saw some nice houses and gardens,beautiful views with mountains ,and old farms.Went for tour with boat and watched at seals on Kenmare bay.We were in Crag cave,,and it was amazing...and we saw a lots other things.
I think i'm still full with all what i saw,that it is in big mix right now in my mind.We wanted see more,but...i never think that Killarney can be so busy,,so many people,so many cars...But we'll come back,,there was much more,what we didn't see.
