Our one-lane detour on the WAW drive around the Dingle Peninsula, part 4 of that amazing little road trip.
One of the things I loved most about the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ app was that it pointed out hidden places; in this case a charming cove with an artfully placed boat, only reached by a single-lane detour down a very winding road. Rusty gears on a dock used to haul in the boats.
Al pointed out a pile of dead fish in the water – when I went to take a picture of one it jump up and I jumped back, then noticed some eel-like creature in the process of reanimating the dead…
Slea Head Drive.
Mount Brandon was where we picked up a French hitchhiker who had jogged all the way from Dingletown to Mount Brandon and then climbed up the mountain and down again.
Little hiking man sign. Yellow flowers on an extremely prickly Gorse at Mt. Brandon.
Dinner that night was at the Marina Inn with their custom-made beer and Shepherd’s pie. Artsy shot for this post: Our single-lane detour on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland, run through the photo app Snapseed. The road trip around the Dingle Peninsula: Starting from Dingletown we headed clockwise around the Peninsula stopping first at the Celtic & Prehistoric Museum, and then at Dunbeg Fort and the Famine Houses for a dose of some history. History is pricey so we carried on for the fantastic scenery with a stop at the West Kerry Brewpub, and missed any more of the ‘sights’ in exchange for taking a one-lane detour, one of the many hidden gems we found when using the Wild Atlantic Way app. From there we went to Mt. Brandon and back home to Dingletown and some well-deserved beer and Shepherd’s Pie!
