Dinlge Town, we are Bound!

We started our day in Ennis, which is an absolutely charming town in Western Ireland. We had to hit the road fairly early to get to our next stop, Dingle, County Kerry, further south, but still in Western Ireland. The drive was a good two-and-a-half to three hours. However, before departing, we had an hour or so to enjoy window shopping in Ennis. A few shops were even open, which was a pleasant surprise, given the early hour of the morning.

Breakfast at the Old Ground Hotel couldn't have been any more delicious. Between the cold buffet items and the perfectly cooked hot items, we were set for the day. The storefronts in Ennis were brightly painted and so charming.

We had a nice visit with "OG" (named after our hotel, the Old Ground), before we left. He lives at the hotel, with his bed and toys front and center in the lobby. You have to love the Europeans! You'd be hard-pressed to see a resident hotel cat at a high-end hotel in the US!

As soon as we arrived in Dingle, we embarked on The Slea Head Drive which is a circular route, forming part of the Wild Atlantic Way, beginning and ending in Dingle, that takes in a large number of attractions and stunning views of the western end of the Dingle Peninsula.

We checked into our B and B, the Greenmount House, which was so quaint and homey. Our rooms were bright and cozy and the inn itself was like being in your own home, but with someone taking care of everything for you. They even did our laundry for us (for a nominal fee), folding and sorting everything perfectly. The views from the breakfast room were of the entire Dingle Bay and absolutely breathtaking as the sun set, around 10:30 PM!
