We decided to get off the more common drive around Dingle Peninsula and take in Brandon Head. Well worth it, and the narrow roads to get there are sparsely traveled and so not difficult to navigate. The view was breathtaking, and we enjoyed it alone. This would have been a beautiful place for a picnic, but then we would have missed O'Connor's Bar & Guesthouse. What we intended to be just a short break extended for over an hour and we were still sad to leave. The atmosphere is charming, the scones were the best we tasted in Ireland, and the company of the innkeeper lively and entertaining. On our next trip to Ireland, we'd definitely plan to spend some time here in this quiet town with a red sand beach, wonderful scenery and hiking, and fun company.
