Getaway day and one last look out our window before a civilized 10:30am departure. Our wonderful driver Patrick, promptly there to pick us up at "Ten Torrty". One last look at Cong as we head for the 2.5 hour drive to Dublin.
None of us relished a 5+ hour drive from Killarny to Cong via the Cliffs of Moher as proposed on our initial itinerary.   With spectacular scenery all along the west coast, the idea of a helicopter just seemed to make sense, as long as the weather cooperated.   Just 5 minutes from The Killarney Park Hotel was the Killarney Racetrack where our chopper and pilot Liam met us at 10:45am.   We discussed with him what we wanted to see along the way and a few minutes later, we were airborne for a fabulous 90 minute trip to and up the coast, with sites that one just can't see from the ground. 
Our home for the next two nights was the pleasant Killarney Park Hotel, perfectly located in the center of the charming city of Killarney.   Our suite...
We departed Dublin airport around 5:30p and some 90 minutes later we arrived at one of the most wonderful and special hotels we have ever visited.
