Destination Dingle

The drive to Dingle was just as beautiful as Dingle itself. First we crossed the Shannon River by ferry (very windy!)then drove to the Dingle Peninsula.

Dingle is a darling little town complete with a famous dolphin. Living in Dingle Bay is a dolphin named Fungie. He has been swimming around in the Bay for 27 years now. We took a boat trip to meet Fungie, the famous bottlenose dolphin of Dingle, and as expected he was more than willing to pay us a visit. We were also joined by a few of Fungie's friends who swam into the bay. It really was exciting to see the dolphins. I think it was quite a memorable experience for the girls. Not surprisingly, we came home with 2 dolphin stuffies as souvenirs.

Wow! We spent Christmas in 1992 in a rented cottage on the Dingle Peninsula. Have to say, it looks a lot more welcoming in September than it did in late December - cold, gray and rainy. Still a magical place, however. I've always wanted to go back in the spring or summer. Thanks for sharing :o)
