Beauty, History, Music and Wonderful People... Dingle
Our Irish Adventure trip started in Northern Ireland and continued through Dublin to the Dingle Peninsula. The days were spent roaming the peninsula, gasping at fantastic views around every bend in the road and soaking up the history of hard life of the earlier generations of the Irish people.
The rocky hillsides climbing from the sea tell the story of the past through the bee hive huts, ring forts, and the more recently vacated potato farm houses. The terrain made life difficult for those inhabiting the hillsides through the ages - which is probably a significant factor in the hardiness of the Irish people. Strangley, from those barren hillsides, the view of the coastline and ocean is one of pure beauty.
The evenings were filled walking the harbor and peninsula with retirement to he pubs where we enjoyed traditional irish music, food, beer and whiskey. It was wonderful to sit in the pubs and meet new Irish friends!
Awe, Dingle and your surronding Peninsula. Another highlight in our travel adventures.
