Chonsil  I was in Dingle in  2009 and again last year.  It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.   The scenery is amazing  and I have to say the people there are absolutly lovely  (Im biased because my sisters and their families live there)

So glad to hear it. The last time I was there, there was a lot of tourist development starting by way of rental cottages, etc. Which were all very comfortable, and it was great to have quality options to stay in, but did worry it would get too touristy. Nice to hear it is still a beautiful and friendly place.

 :) No, no Fungi - not enough time unfortunately and wasn't sure I was up for the boat ride!
