    Dingle Town

    June 13, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Dingle Town hat nichts mit Disney zu tun, auch wenn es sich so anhört.
    Das bekannteste hier ist der Delphin „Fungie“ und seine Freunde die sich in der Bucht tummeln. Und dann wurde auch noch etwas von Star Wars 7 hier an diesen Klippen gedreht.Read more

    Tower View B&B

    June 25, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    It was around 2:30p when we arrived at our base in Dingle. The Tower View B&B is away from the hubbub of Dingle Town, but within a short walk of downtown ... a perfect location for us.

    Helen greeted us warmly, introducing us to her mom, who is helping out while Helen cares for her three-week old baby daughter.

    After marking up a sightseeing map, she escorted us to our spacious room on the first floor [second floor here in the US] ... the best one of the rooms we’ve stayed in since we began our trip a week ago. Wow! Time sure is flying!

    We have a lovely view of Dingle Bay, with the “tower” mentioned in the B&B’s name sitting atop a hill on the far side. The farm across the road adds charm to the scenery.

    The sunny day was just too wonderful to waste indoors, so after settling in, we went off to explore Dingle Town.

    A Stroll Around Dingle Town

    June 25, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 50 °F

    From the aquarium, we continued our stroll into town, delighting in the beautiful weather.

    The best part of our walk? The tour busses had all departed so there were no crowds to deal with as we wandered around.

    We wrapped up our outing with a bit of shopping ... at SuperValu for an light snack in lieu of dinner at the B&B ... at Murphy’s for ice cream ... at one more place that I will write about in the next footprint.

    Dingle’s Oceanworld Aquarium

    June 25, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ 🌧 50 °F

    A pleasant walk along the waterfront brought us to the aquarium on the outskirts of downtown Dingle.

    At first, we had no plans to go in. But checking it out on the internet, we saw that the place was promoted as Ireland’s largest such facility. So we decided to check it out. Besides, who can resist a Gentoo penguin feeding!

    We were pleased with the wide variety of sea creatures in the tanks. That we didn’t have to deal with crowds, or sticky fingerprints on the tanks, made the visit all the better.

    Day 8: Ring of Dingle

    June 26, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 59 °F

    The drive we did from our base in Dingle today is actually known as the West End Peninsula Drive or the Slea Head Drive. I’ve christened the roughly circular route “The Ring of Dingle.”

    With delightful scenery visible most of the way and frequent pull-outs for photo ops, this drive beats the Ring of Kerry hands down ... IMHO.

    Guidebooks indicate that the drive can be done in two hours. Even with the detours we made it was just 30 miles or so. But par for the course, we pretty much took all day. Hey, what’s the hurry, right?

    Day 11 - To Dingle

    October 13, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ 🌬 16 °C

    We left Portmagee today and it was raining and very windy. Shite weather again. We went down to the Skellig Chocholate factory. Nice chocholate.Because we couldn't go out to the Skellig islands (we couldn't even see it from the main land as it was so rainy) we stopped in at the Skellig musem to see what it was all about. This was very interesting. The monks started on the island 600 ad and stayed ther for some 1200 years. Over this time they built a monistary and 3 lots of giant steps leading to the monistary. They abandoned the island and it is unsure why. In the late 1800s there was a light house built on the island and it was fueled by peat. A family lived on the island to run it but by the early 1900s the lighthouse became automated. A plane in WW1 clpped the top of the island and crashed into the see loosing all life on board the plane.
    We had a look at the peat bogs.
    We spent most of the day in the bus today as the weather was so bad. We came to dingle and checked into the Dingle Hotel for the next two nights. The afternoon was spent learing folk dancing which was really fun before heading out to dinner. The rain had stopped and the wind died down by 10pm.

    Athboy to Dingle via Adare

    September 12, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Ventured off to the wilds of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way. Called into Adare, a cute little town with thatched roof houses (shops).
    Arrived in Dingle to find our accomodation was booked for another time, thankfully last minute option was way better.Read more
