The Dingle Peninsula

I don't believe the Dingle Peninsula remotely gets the attention that it deserves.

If you're wondering where it is, it's in the Southwest corner of the Republic of Ireland. County Kerry, to be specific.

It was a two-week road trip anyway, and we stopped by at every little quaintness we saw.

Most of it just rolling hills and meadows as we burned up the miles.

We were actually headed for Brandon Point. The other half had a painting of it, and wanted to see the real thing.

We hiked up a bit and the view was gorgeous.

The waves of the Atlantic slammed against the cliffs, which I found really impressive, but I thought of all those people who left Ireland for a better life in the United States a few centuries ago.

Did they regret leaving the beauty and serenity of their homeland?
