As you sit relaxed in your easy chair,
If you haven’t been to Co. Kerry allow me to take you there.
‘Tis a special place it must be said, where you’re welcome all year round
But to visit during summertime, really you are duty bound.
A visit to Killarney is something you must undertake,
Take a trip by jaunting car or visit lake by lake.
Then pay a visit to renowned Muckross House, exploring its vast grounds,
Taking in the splendour of the mountains which surround –
This place of immense beauty; valleys, lakes and waterfalls,
It is something you will cherish as you look back on and recall.
Oh and then there’s Dingle, another place that’s a must see
And maybe take a boat trip with that chance to kiss Fungi?
Or perhaps the Ring of Kerry there is something you will cherish
But if you chance this trip in wintertime – bring winter woollies or you may perish.
There is also this special place to rest, and have a drink or two
A spot of beauty it must be said, known as Ladies view
Where, If you linger long enough – and if you don’t ‘twill be your loss,
‘Cause as the signpost indicates, ‘tis where leprechauns tend to cross.
On that note I should conclude; I hope your appetite is whetted
Do make this trip before it’s too late, or for sure you will regret it.
Here’s a short P.S. before I sign off; sure I could have told you a lot more,
But why ruin the attraction which surrounds; take that holiday and explore.
