A Trip to Dingle, Co. Kerry, Ireland - 21st-25th July 2009

Nosher, Isobel and The Boy™ are over in County Kerry, in the west of Ireland, for a wedding. We're there for most of a week, in a spacious rented pad next door to Ballintaggart House, just outside Dingle. The first couple of days is spent mostly hanging out, but we get a few moments to wander around Dingle and even go out for a bit of food and a few pints of Guinness...
