Then just on the road, that in this region do not have hard shoulders.

Huge tourist trap. I am disappointed I paid any money to visit. Move along to the next point of interest. A few randomly put together houses, 2 Irish Wolfhounds, 1 bog pony, and a few roosters.
Tourist trap. Not worth the stop. A few village homes with thatched roof. Some videos of the peat making process. Seems to exist mostly as a spot to send bus tours through and make gift shop sales.
Marcus TeschA tourist trap at the beginning of the ring of Kerry. Interesting, but nothing more. Who is making the tour with children, should stop here.
