Dingletown in Ireland

October 4, afternoon and evening

From the Shannon Ferry we drove through Conner Pass to Dingletown.

We booked into Murphy’s Pub B&B, recommended by Mr. James Murphy himself. Ireland has more than its fair share of grey days but in Dingletown they made up for it by painting the buildings with vibrant colours.

The next day, after a fabulous breakfast, we spent the entire day driving around a very small part of the Dingle Peninsula.Ireland Route: from the Shannon Ferry to Dingletown My artsy shot for this leg of the trip: Carved wood decoration of hair in Celtic knots on a shop in Dingletown.Carved wood of Celtic hair decorate a shop in Dingletown, Ireland, run through the photo app SnapseedMore on our 2015 trip to Ireland.
