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.

We stopped along the road at a beautiful overlook and pulled out our salad plates. It was so cold and windy that we decided to have our picnic lunch in the car, but it was no hardship with that kind of view.
