... we are back at the hostel to fuel up for surfing.
Derek picks us up in the Clare Surf Safari van to drive us the 30 minutes or so to the beach at Lahinch. I enjoy the drive through the countryside and the towns without having to watch the road.

The bus ride took about 2 1/2 hours and we slept most of the way. When we got there we started walking around Cork. It is a great city! The shops were adorable. We walked around Cork for awhile and ate at this adorable Pub in ...
... levels of intelligence. I wonder if the inspiration for their name comes from this drive or area of Ireland. Whether it was or not, it made me think back to it, and I thought I would at least make not of it.
Dingle is not only the name of the town, but obviously the name of the Peninsula, and just about every other place name on the drive. For a time, the people from the area tried to change it all to Daingean, which is the Irish term for ...
