It was our plan to have a holiday starting in Kerry. Our first port of call was in Adare, from there we planned to go to Cahirciveen and stay a night or two at Mannix Point Camping & Caravan Park before moving along the famous Ring of Kerry and then to West Cork. We were welcomed on site by Mortimer a very pleasant gentleman who couldn't be more helpful in showing us around the most beautiful setting for a caravan park situated at the edge of the Atlantic overlooking Valentia Island. There was a real turf fire in the Campers sitting room, with its walls adorned with musical instruments. Mortimer explained of his love for music and we were welcome to use any of the instruments including a beautiful piano. Had we been tenting, there was a kitchen fully equipped to cater for our every culinary need. Toilets & Showers were clean with fresh cut flowers and piped music within. Our stay was as stated only for two nights. We stayed for the whole holiday, with advice from Mortimer we saw something different every day, walks and sightseeing seemed to be his speciality. It was also within walking distance to the town, with its interesting shops and church.
