... up or hit you in the face. Our descent was parallel to a fast flowing stream, on occasions the path we were on itself appeared to be a stream. Mud would consume our footsteps if we were not diligent about where we stepped, slippery rocks needed to be negotiated, while we also needed to keep an eye out for overhead branches that could knock us off our feet. Our final gate for the day opened onto a paved country lane that passed the crumbling tower of a church in ruins, yet with a ...

... a local taxi to pick us up at around 6.00pm and drive us again to Ballyferriter, where the choices for dinner were far more expansive than the zero options available in Dunquin. Tonight we tried a small pub popular with the locals. The food was typical pub fare for these parts - traditional cooking served in large quantities.

They existed by fishing and raising sheep on these desolate islands that are within view of Dingle, but a world away - without electricity, roads or running water. The islands ...

... I'm here in the school. It's fascinating to see all of the school materials around us as Gaeilge. Study, tea, study, lunch ( lón) more study, long dinner break, then back to the school for Irish dancing. On the long break I found my way to the ocean, so powerful and beautiful. After dancing I explored the sea cliffs by the B&B. In particular, I decided to see what they meant by one of their more alarming ...

Better weather than expected in Ireland

... about 5 establishments in the whole place, so having to leave early in order to avoid driving the roads at night was acceptable.

I realized my planning mistake as we're driving to our second stop on day 3: the roads that looked short and easy on Google Maps were in fact long and treacherous. And Dingle, the town I selected to stay in south of Shannon - so that we could visit the Ring of Kerry, the Blarney Castle, and of course, kiss ...
