One of the places several people had recommended us to travel to in Ireland was the Dingle Peninsula, but we didn't really have it on our itinerary. Fortunately we had time to sneak up there on one of our travel days. We had heard that Dingle had the best seafood in Ireland, and since the hubs is a big seafood lover, it was great that we got to make the trip. We also got to stop in a local cheese shop, which was fun for me. While it was sunny and warm further inland, it got to be cloudy and overcast on the peninsula. I imagine everything is even more beautiful when it's sunny.
This was on our drive to Dingle, just before we started heading into the mountains.
I love it when I can capture pretty good pictures from the moving car.
Did you know that Irish is a language? (And it's not Gaelic as one taxi driver told us.) I hope this didn't say anything important because there was no English translation.
A boat in the foggy Dingle Harbor.
I've never been to the Northeastern United States, but this is what I picture.
I loved this boat/bench made out of rocks. The stone on the left talks about sailors/fishermen who have lost their lives at sea. Even though it was pretty chilly here, I was amazed at the flowers. It looks like winter and feels like early spring, but they had some pretty flowers.
This was a beach on the way from Dingle to Killarney. I love the ocean...even if it's freezing cold.
Did you know there's surfing in Ireland? We were shocked.
This is the tallest mountain in Ireland, called Carrantouhill. It's 3414 feet tall. I live at a higher elevation that that. In fact, when we were in Waterford, there was a mountain rescue team that was trying to raise money in the town square. We just looked around the town and asked where the mountains were! Anyway, the next day we would drive through this range, the Macgillycuddy's Reeks. While the mountains were beautiful, I loved the ocean especially. Although that always seems to be the case with me!
