    Beehive huts Dingle

    July 25, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    The most common surviving house on the Dingle Pensinsula was the clochan, a round house built using local stone, and roofed in either stone or thatch. The bee hive like structures date back to the 6th to 10th centuries AD and are the houses where the people lived. We called into the site of several of these homes, now semi set up for the tourist. Photo opportunities were presented including the opportunity for photos in a small farm yard, farmhouse, with the dogs,the friendly seagulls or adorable baby lambs. As usual all at a cost of a few euros!!Read more

    Ferry Crossing Dingle Coastline

    July 27, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Today has turned out wet and very misty. We left the hotel early to catch the ferry over to the Dingle Peninsula. The ferry is a roll of and off one as this is only a half hour trip. Seas have been kind so far. The Peninsula is apparently amazing in fine weather but today let the tour guide down since spite of his wearing a tie.

    We crossed the Shandon river and we're told about the Liberator, Danny O'Connell who fought for equality of faith as the Catholics could not own land. On to County Claremont. Just an aside, this morning I was delighted to see and hear a yearling in the car park. A lady in high heels was helping to corrale it! Fun to watch her.

    Having got myself thoroughly confused I think it was at Camp we had morning tea. Had a very relaxing Irish coffee. The pub was a real oldie style one with peat fire going, low beams and bench tale setting up great atmosphere. Lunch was in Dingle and had lovely piece of code in beer type batter. So light and crispy. Dingle is a delightful, touristy town of colour and the estates ice ream parlours.

    As you drive through the roads the hedges glow with the red of wild fusion. Very pretty. The roads are mainly one way as you travel the coast line. Exciting drivng for driver. One one road we lost part of a mirror as the trees come out over the road. The next mishap occurred as we left the cliffs of the Peninsula onto easier roads and around the corner on the wrong side came a car, apparently blithely unaware of taking on a huge coach. Good driving and scraping the side of the bus got us through, but for rest of trio we had a buzzer telling us that the storage doors were not shut.

    Along the coastal drive you see the old be hive houses atop the cliffs which drop down 100 plus feet below the road. A little unnerving to drive along. My photos have ever plenty of Irish mist just to remind me where we are.

    Slea Head

    July 2, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We stop briefly in Dingle to sort out our accommodation before continuing along the south side of the Dingle peninsula. The drive is spectacular all the way to the western end Slea Head with great views to the Blasket Islands.

    As we loop around the peninsula we come to lovely Coumeenole Beach where they filmed Ryan's Daughter. The clifftop roads are so narrow here that tour buses are requested to drive clockwise around the loop.

    Halbinsel Dingle

    August 10, 2016 in Ireland ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Wir haben gut geschlafen. Nach dem selbst gestalteten Frühstück drehen wir noch ne Runde durch Dingle. Aber die Stadt erwacht und es häufen sich die Touristen Ströme. Wir fahren dann einmal den "Slea Head Loop" ab. Die R554 führt einmal durch die Berge und führt nach Dingle zurück. Sehr schöne Aussichten und sogar ein Drehort von "Star Wars" begegnen uns hier.
    Unterwegs zahlen wir 6,- Euro für ein Prähistorisches Stein Fort. 500 vor Christi. Das erste mal das das Preis Leistungs Verhältnis überhaupt nicht passt. Petra meinte gleich: Sowas kann ich auch in den Garten bauen.

    Danach aber weiter Richtung "Ring of Kerry". Die bekanntesten Rundstrasse Irlands mit den meisten Sehenswürdigkeiten.

    Dunmore head

    August 16, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Uitzichtpunt met kliffen en zicht op Blasket Island. Normaal gingen we hier overnachten maar we zijn te vroeg en na een serieuze wandeling met mooi uitzicht en veel schapen rijden we toch door.

    Slea Head

    September 2, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Opposite the farm, just across the road, we have an amazing lookout point from where we can get a glimpse of world-renowned Skellig Island, famous for being the retirement place of Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi and, most importantly, home to the PORGS! 🤩🤩🤩

    We proceed to another panoramic stop, where we can take pictures of some impressive dark rocks as big as islands. A few minutes later we reach another lookout in front of a dramatic cliff where many scenes of the last Star Wars movies were shot. 🌟 🚀 🎥
