Ireland – Day 6

On day 6, we woke up to a slight drizzle – which was really not all that surprising, given that we were in Ireland! We decided to hike around the Slieve Mish Mountains. The owner of the B & B recommended this to us, and it turned out to be amazing! We went to Glanteenassig for a walk around the breathtaking views and waterfalls. It was very windy and rainy, but we made the most of our rain jackets. This was precisely why bought them. The lake was pretty large, but most notably were the lovely wooden planks and railing that followed the circumference of the lake. We even found a Geo-cache here! Way to go Matt! Actually, I think Gavin found it this time. Way to go Gavin! We went to back to Dingle to check out a new brewery called Crean’s Brewery, but there was absolutely no customer service. No one seemed interested in giving us a tour, so we left. We ended up having a great time at the Dingle Aquarium instead.

We had decided on the first day to come back to Dingle tonight for the folk music. Before the concert, we stopped at whatever restaurant appeared to be open. Boy did we luck out! I had the best dinner, well, at least the best fish ever! I ate Hake on garlic mash. Woooah! Delicious. The restaurant is called An Canteen. Unfortunately, it took a little longer than expected to get all of our food, because we did order soups beforehand, so we had to scarf down our dinners. It was just a short walk to the venue. The anxious audience (mostly retired Americans) filed into the St. James Church for some foot stomping, folk music. We had a blast and even saw the wildlife guide from our boat trip. She was the ticket-taker. After the concert we walked to our car in a whole-lotta rain . . . again.
