We stopped for lunch and shopping in the town of Dingle and I was instantly re-charmed over the small Irish towns and villages and their vibrant colorful personalities.
If you come to Dingle, be sure to stop at Harrington’s for the best fish & chips in all of Ireland! The seafood chowder was also to die for.
Yes, I will seriously need a diet when I get home. But it was SO WORTH IT!
These photos upcoming are in no certain order – I was just trying to capture the feel of Dingle and I still don’t think I did it justice ---but hopefully you will feel like you took a long walk with us up this darling town!
Doorways are a favorite photo opportunity…look at the celtic braids on this wooden door décor! AWESOME!
Stone buildings are classic – I would have loved to have known who lived here when it was built.
The cutest shoe shop in all of Ireland!
Be sure to watch the entry ways! You just might leave quilt-inspired!
Turquoise and Raspberry! I LOVE IT!!
Notice the American flag flying on the mustard colored building? They love us
Old churches are always a photo-must for me. So many of life’s greatest memories and moments were focused around the church. Births, marriages, deaths ---
I loved the rugged iron hinges on the door. Do you see the orange writing?
Traditional Irish or Gaelic.
Beautiful altar – all that stone work!
Okay..this shop sign just cracked me up! Elfis has Left the Building!
The proprieter is probably down the pub for a bite of lunch--
One thing I know for sure…EVERY town in Ireland has at least ONE Murphy’s Pub!
Murphy’s from the front!
This row of shops face the bay ---
Fishing boats in port.
The name of this vessel? The FIONA K II, of course!
Can you see how windy and wet it is? Look at the gal in front’s hair!
We still had to stop on the hillside to capture this view:
That storm is really brewing out there, it’s cold and rainy – such a difference from just the day before!
Can you see how the stones have been piled to help prevent against further erosion?
Looking across at the islands.
No WAY will weather dampen my spirits! We are loving our Irish Adventure!
I hope next time you’ll come WITH ME!
