Chauffeurdrive Killarney and Dingle peninsula

Last night we dined in Robertinos Italian restaurant in Killarney, and what a really lovely meal we had. Everything was excellent and nobody had any complaints. In the picture above we have Jeff and Terry, and Sue and Mike waiting patiently for me to take this photo before diving in to their delicious desserts.
Below you have close ups of these treats.


Chocolate toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream, and fresh cream, and smothered in thick chocolate sauce.


Tiramisu, was Terry's choice, and what a gorgeous choice.


I went for this bread and butter pudding with custard and fruit.

If you get to Killarney i can highly recommend this restaurant as their food was just fab.The staff here were also most attentive and helpful.  It is located in high street, which is a continuation of the main street.


Today, our day commenced with a visit to St Mary's Cathedral in Killarney. This is a very special church, and construction began on this church back before the famine. Another must to visit.


Well Terry is a Teresa, and this shrine to St Teresa was most appropriate for her today.



Now we were on or way to the Dingle peninsula and this photo of Sue and Mike was taken at Inch strand along the way.


Jeff told me that he did not need my help and that he would take his own photos, "Thank you very Much", but i took one for spite anyway.


This Bull was on guard here, and we kept well clear.

We came across this accident on our way into Dingle town. Tourists should not be allowed to drive these things. That is what chauffeurs are for. Pay attention.


Mike and Sue at the beehive huts near Slea Head.


I took this photo from inside the same hut, with my friends on the outside. Even patient men like me need a break.


The weather today was wild and wet, our first wild one, and the sea was really spectacular as you can see from this photo which i took at Slea Head at the tip of the peninsula.


This photo gives you a better idea of what the weather was like today.


Back in Dingle once again, and here we have everybody together on the harbour front, with the bronze of Fungi, the famous Dingle Dolphin.


On our way back from Dingle we were diverted, as they were removing that tourists truck from the ditch. This was a stroke of good fortune as we travelled a road unfamiliar to me, and found Minard Castle. This wonderful old Norman Castle dates back to the time of Cromwell and was occupied by the Fitzgerald's, a Norman family who were attacked and killed here. In this photo you have Terry and Sue adding to this lovely scene.


Mike pictured here as he climbed the rocky seashore for a better view.


Terry in the same place. 

This was a really great day once again with a great group of people that i know i can call my friends. The weather only added to the day with all of the spectacular sea views.
Tomorrow is our final day together as we make our way to Dublin where i will have to say good bye to another great group of ambassadors for the USA, and our Irish Americans. I am sure that they will have plenty of tales to tell when they return home.
