Dingle Peninsula

by | Dec 3, 2008 | Travel

Even though it rained for most of our last full day in Ireland, we still enjoyed some scenic views of the Dingle peninsula coastline, Dingle Bay and the Blasket Islands.

This is nearby where Eric almost got blown out to sea.

Looking east from one of the many pullout areas. Amazingly, there were sheep grazing right on the edge of these cliffs.

a two way road in Ireland

This photo’s purpose is to illustrate what a two lane road often looks like in Ireland. I believe the Tobacco Trail by our house is wider than this.

driving to the beach

We were able to drive our little rental car down to the beach. Turning around was interesting.  A closeup of those signs at the very bottom are on Flickr.

Eric and I on a very chilly Irish beach. And loving every minute of it.

Blasket Islands off the western coast

This shot of the Blasket Islands was the last good photo of the day as the rain and wind began to pick up. After our delicious pub lunch, we got a shot of a roadside falls along Connor’s Pass on our way back to Limerick, but unfortunately the stunning advertised views were completely blocked by fog.
