Although it was somewhat foggy, we were still able to see plenty on this loop. As usual, the scenery was incredible.
Dingle is a delight and thankfully our accommodation is a modern gem away from the tourist drag at the port. We are in the old and authentic main street with multi-coloured facades, pub upon pub and the occasional sound of horses hooves clattering on the cobblestones below.
