It started as a joke and nowadays you will find this great Irish Fillingstation in almost every guidebook and so you might want to know, where to find this popular place to take a photograph :
It is situated next to a pub, and I am afraid, it is neighter filled with Beer nor with gasoline. This station is in Co.Kerry, close to the village of Lauragh / An Laithreach, at the north-entrance of the road R 574 to Healy-Pass, that is the border to Co.Cork. The road to Healy-pass is really scenic with a great view over the landscape and some lakes.
Healy Pass was once built in order to give some work for the poor population of Ireland and it helps to have a rather fast connection between Adrigole in the south and Lauragh in the north. The road over Healy Pass is quite narrow and with my big Mercedes-motorhome I had to drive some of the various bends very carefully. Only at a few places you may stop there and take a look around without blocking the road.

Directions: This station is in Co.Kerry, close to the village of Lauragh / An Laithreach, at the north-entrance of the road R 574 to Healy-Pass, that is also the border to Co.Cork.
