Change things up with these side-trips from Killarney: Dingle Sheepdogs Demonstrations & Trials (in Ventry), Clonakilty (West Cork Model Railway Village & Inchydoney Beach) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dingle). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Kerry Cliffs, take in the dramatic scenery at Torc Waterfall, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Muckross Abbey.
