To Dingle Peninsula

On Monday we drove into West Kerry along the Dingle Peninsula to the town of Dingle. 
This drive along the north of the peninsula was through diverse scenery and landscape. 
Into the hills where the Brandon Bay can be seen in the distance. 
Then into the rocky steep terrain.

Hugging the narrow road (while driving on the "wrong" side)



Sheep in the road

Through the Connor Pass with a view of Dingle Bay. 

We arrived in Dingle, the "westernmost town in Europe." 
Famous for Fungi, the town's friendly dolphin who lives in the harbor.

The town is known for its brightly painted houses and storefronts
along narrow streets to the harbor.  


 My lunch:  an open-faced crab sandwich on gluten free bread with a pot of tea

After lunch and shopping , 
Austin and I enjoyed Irish Coffee Ice Cream.  Yum!
The drive back took us along the southern route of the peninsula.

Wonderful scenery, those sheep better get out of the road!

What a beautiful village and road to travel. Your lunch looks utterly delicious. I love when villages paint each house a different color. They just look so happy.
