Here’s a really short snapshot of a recent road trip I made down to Dingle with my curly partner in crime Katie. If you like photos of sheep & rainy landscapes then you’ve come to the right place!

We stayed at the coolest little eco-cabin just a 5 minute drive from Dingle town. It was called ‘The Nest’ which we assumed was due to it’s grassy roof but later learned it might be because random birds will just hop inside!

It had a cute little greenhouse attached too and you could get lovely wafts of mint coming in to through the window {got us feeling fierce at one with nature!}. It was also one of those houses where nothing seemed to be straight or at a right angle, everything was just slightly off. But hey it was all part of the charm. Oh and  the main selling point for me was that it had a toasty little stove!

After we arrived we decided to be big typical tourists so we went around to loads of ring forts, fed sheep and blasted out every quintessential Irish tune we could think of while we were driving.

We kicked of Saturday with an amazing morning sea kayak all around Dingle Bay {with Irish Adventures}. Bonus was that it was just us two and the instructor so we really got to beast it around and cover loads of distance & take in tonnes of  incredible caves! Alas we didn’t see Fungi, but I’ve got my theories on just how likely it is that Fungi is still doing the rounds . . . I also obviously couldn’t risk taking my camera with me on the kayak so unfortunately I’ve no snaps of this.

So that absolutely zapped all our energy but we were short on time so being the troopers we are we went on a big mad drive all around the peninsula and through Conor’s Pass. The day had started out so flipping bright & sunny but by the time we hit the road it was back to the usual Irish shite, nice big, unrelenting sheets of rain!

To finish off the day we treated ourselves to some Murphy’s Ice-cream & sorbet and a delish dinner out in the town.  In the end it wasn’t nearly enough time to take in all the sights but I shall be back for more … hopefully for a wedding 😉
