Dingle Peninsula, Ireland Photos

August 2018

 Good morning rural Ireland!

Good morning rural Ireland!

Located on the west coast of Ireland in the county Kerry rests a small seaside town called Dingle. The town itself is on a peninsula with the same name, and as I was told, there is a road loop around the whole peninsula that runs about 50km (30 miles) and is comprised of narrow, windy, hilly roads of picturesque views. Naturally, I wanted to see it all, so I rented a bicycle and set out to ride around the whole thing. Unfortunately though, I didn't quite finish the journey, because just about an hour into the ride, the weather turned against my favor and as I was going down a hill in the rain, my bike slid out from under me, causing me to quickly become acquainted with the pavement. (See below)

 Depiction of the crash. For obvious reasons, I was not able to take a photo of it.

Anyway though, despite losing a fair amount of skin from my hands, knees, and elbows, I was still able to back track to where I started. However, I didn't take any more pictures after the crash, therefore all the ones here are just of the first half of the loop. That said, please enjoy!

 Little did I know, I was about to hit the pavement hard very soon.

The Town

Here are a couple pictures of the town of Dingle that I took as a different point in the trip. For this time, there was no crash.
