National Geographic got it right when they described the Dingle Peninsula as the most beautiful place on earth. I was lucky to have selected "Herlihy House" for a month long visit to commemorate my 50th birthday as it offered the best view in town, clean and comfortable living with all the amenities, wonderful neighbors (including cows, sheep, seagulls, a dolphin, yellow lab, and curious kitty cat), secluded beach, and choice of scenic walk or short drive into town. Even when it rains here, the beauty that surrounds you is overwhelming. From the comfy blue chairs in the living room you can watch an ever-changing sky that seems close enough to touch. As for Dingle, you won't find a more charming town with friendly merchants, talented musicians and artisans, amazing cuisine and of course, lot's of Guinness (best at John Benny's)! Stay awhile and get to know this special place.
