Ireland - Dingle Peninsula

We stayed one night at a Bed and Breakfast in Ventry which is on the South Coast of the Dingle Peninsula. It was a lovely old farmhouse with fantastic views over to the Ring of Kerry.

We started the day by heading along the road in search of the beehive huts that we'd heard to much about.

View from inside looking at the roof. I suspect they used mud to seal the gaps

After we'd found and looked around some of the huts, we then drove on and enjoyed the views over the sea. In one picture you can even see the Skelligs :)

Then we found the site of the oldest church in Ireland.

Me loitering in front. My clothes are horrible but we were running out of clean ones by then.

 A really old grave marker.

From there we went back to Dingle town so we could drive over the Connor Pass to the other side of the peninsula. Along with every other tourist in the area it seemed. The views were spectacular though. The road was quite narrow and there were people driving the other way who didn't seem to understand the concept of 'keep left'. Worth it though. Only if you're a confident driver - preferably with a passenger who can tell you how close you are to the edge :P (thank you AJ).
