The ambitions for travel in Ireland were very simple: 2 days in an alternative health retreat (Hagal Healing Farm) with massage and space to do yoga, some walking, then staying in our friend’s cottage on the tip of the Dingle peninsula. Ireland (which is normally quite damp) had just had its wettest summer for many years. We brought a string of mostly sunny days with us, which was very welcome for the farmers who were about to lose all their feed for the coming winter.
Dingle was just perfect. Staying in Dunquin, the most westerly village in Europe, walking the wild coast, visiting beehive huts, and enjoying great music at the Dingle music festival.
