Stop At: Cill Maoilchéadair, Kilmalkedar, Dingle, Co. Kerry, Ireland

The ruined Romanesque church visible today dates to the first half of the 12th century, and certain features are similar to those found in Cormac’s Chapel on The Rock of Cashel in Co. Tipperary. Also, visible on the site are a sun dial, large stone cross and alphabet stone (inside the church near the chancel arch). Some fine stone carvings can also be found inside the church.

Stop At: Conor Pass, Ireland

The Conor Pass is one of the highest mountain passes served by road. It is 456 metres (1496 ft) high.
