Staigue Fort and the Beach, Kerry, Ireland - 2nd August 2017

We spend a few hours at Staigue Fort, a late-iron-age ring fort thought to have been built around 400AD. Then, after a stop at Cathair Dónall Garden Centre for some refreshments and a quick trip to a deserted village, Philly directs us to the most amazing beach, un-signposted and tucked away down a long lane - one that the locals clearly keep secret to themselves. Then, it's time for a gathering in the Sneem Hotel for some dinner and the odd pint of Guinness.
