Pretty as a picture! This is Ross Castle, County Kerry’s majestic 15th century stronghold set within the idyllic surrounds of Killarney National Park. Legend has it that O’Donoghue Mór, who built the castle, lies sleeping beneath the waters of Lough Leane. It’s said he rises from his slumber on the first morning of May every seven years to circle the lake on the back of a beautiful white horse. If you’re lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the phantom you’re said to be guaranteed good luck for the rest of your life! There must be lots of wishful visitors at Ross Castle on the first of May! 📸 (@nataliediscala) #loveireland#ireland#irland#irlande#irlanda#wildatlanticway#rosscastle#castle#killarney#kerry#legend#myth
@tourismireland We’ve made two trips to your island this last year. It’s hard to define what has captured our heart! We love the beauty, green and wild and wonderful but we’ve been to lots of beautiful places in the world. But we have to say that the people there are all so friendly and welcoming. We seem to leave the rushed world behind as soon as we land.
