Dingle – Celtic Legend

I think video shows that even on an overcast day on the Dingle peninsula (Corca Dhuibhne in Irish)… and all of Ireland can still be gorgeous. I’m not sure why I’m finding so many Dingle videos lately… must just be a photogenic area Thanks to Eurodestination for the video. Enjoy this post?If so, join our list of e-newsletter subscribers.

Valentia Island

For some reason I’ve got Valentia Island on my mind. It’s located on the tip of the Ring of Kerry and is reachable on one side by ferry and the other by bridge. This cottage shows the wear and tear of life on the edge of the sea, but on the day I was there it was warm and sunny… a wonderful day indeed.

Cattle in the Hay on the Ring of Beara

The sun might not be shining much in Ireland today, but this photo from the Ring of Beara in County Kerry reminds me of the gorgeous weather I had while touring around the area last summer. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, “When the weather is good, there’s no place more beautiful than Ireland.” Enjoy this post?If so, join our list of e-newsletter subscribers.
