We went to Dingle on Friday afternoon in County Kerry, Ireland. It was its usual bustling tourist spot. It reminds me of Cornwall but yet it's still got its own unique feel about it. We heard many different accents (English, Irish, German, American) and an elderly American lady came in the chip shop ("chipper") and asked if they sold 'fresh' fish. I treated the missus, number two son and myself to a bag of chips each. Well you have to splash out sometimes.
We then went for a drive along the incredible Slea Head Drive. The scenery is stunning and it's been used in films like: 'Far and Away' and 'Ryan's Daughter'.
We saw lots of quaint cottages, holiday bungalows, ancient Beehive huts and stopped at The Slea Head Famine Cottages. See pictures below.
Beehive Hut. These ancient dry stone walls structures are round like a bee hive and used from ancient times to 1200 AD.

Ireland is an incredible beautiful country. The Dingle Peninsula is the most Western point of Europe. If you ever want to see some incredible beautiful scenery. I would recommend you visit Ireland.
