Ponte di Cromwell

Ingresso gratuito

Nessuno sa bene come abbia preso il nome il ponte di Cromwell a Kenmare, ma probabilmente non prende il nome da Oliver Cromwell. Una teoria popolare sul ponte di pietra è che fosse chiamato "croimeal", la parola gaelica per "baffi", ma quando gli anglofoni hanno sentito per caso la gente del posto parlare del ponte, hanno pensato che stessero dicendo "Cromwell".

Comunque abbia preso il nome, il Cromwell's Bridge è uno dei tanti siti belli e antichi lungo il pittoresco Ring of Kerry. Si trova appena fuori dal villaggio di Kenmare, vicino al cerchio di pietre, rendendolo una comoda tappa per i visitatori che passano per l'area.
