Dingle with Burgert with Dave Hogan chauffeurdriven vacations

This morning we were on our way to the Dingle peninsula on another misty overcast day. At least today we were able to get decent photos most of the time, and the temperature was ok. In the photo above, you see Liz and James on the beach at Inch.
Pictured on the roadside as we made our way to Dingle town.
You can see this typically Irish elderly couple as you enter Dingle town.
Maura Houlihan always welcomes my guests into her home near Slea head. Maura played the part of Tom Cruise's mother in the movie "Far and Away" which was filmed on the Dingle peninsula.
James and Liz pictured outside one of Maura's Beehive huts, which are common place on her land.
I took this photo from inside a beehive hut looking out through the door.
Fancy driving on this road? Well if you drive around the Dingle peninsula these are the roads you will drive on at Slea Head.
Another picture of the road at Slea Head.
Slea Head, with the Great Blasket Island offshore in the mist.


Jim had to get a picture of these lovely Fuscia and Montbretia bushes on the roadside.
More late blossoms.
Here we have Liz, enjoying the fresh air in the town of Dingle. In the background, you can see this little "Home on wheels", which is a tourist attraction. Its owner plays a variety of musical instruments, and has a number of animals, including a donkey and a couple of dogs. People like to get their photo taken with this unusual group.
Liz, feeding a carrot to this dog, while he sits on the donkeys back. I thought it was the donkey who liked carrots.
Funghi the dolphin is, and has been for many years, a leading attraction in Dingle. You can chase him around Dingle harbour in one of the many pleasure boats which are available to bring you on a "Funghi" cruise.Here you can see James and Liz, pictured with the bronze of this great dolphin, who has brought so many people to Dingle.
A farewell photo of the donkey scene as we began our journey back to Killarney.
