I was so excited to take my family to Killarney when we visited in 2008 as I had enjoyed the area so much when I visited as a single person in 2002. Yes, it is the most touristed area in Ireland- but that's for good reason. It's the base for most Ring of Kerry tours, the lakes are incredibly beautiful and it's a very central location for western Ireland tourism. Unfortunately we were just a few weeks early- very off season- and many sites were still closed. While we weren't able to take a tour of Ross Castle, we did wander around the exterior.
I love this photo of Caelan, then 18 months old, as she happily explores. Her nonchalance as she passes the cannon- as if it's the most natural thing in the world- is just incredibly endearing.
