Ireland – Dingle Peninsula
Our first excursion in Ireland was to the Dingle Peninsula. It was a special excursion because some of my husband’s relatives were from Dingle. It was a two hour drive there with beautiful views of the country side. As you can imagine, everything is so green! We took a quick stop to get a photo of this incredible thatched roof. It is really quite amazing to learn that these thatched roofs work as well and last as long as conventional asphalt roofs.
We stopped in Dingle town for a quick bite to eat and my first Guiness of the trip at Murphy’s Bar. The town was quiet because it is the off season. It reminded me a little of Rockport, Massachusetts being right on the water and full of quaint stores.
Here are a few other photos from that day…..
