“Damn you Dingle.”

I’ve become pretty accustom to muttering this sentence as I chug out of Dingle town, usually late on a Sunday evening, with a dull thud in my head, a sizable hole in my wallet, and a thousand new memories to leaf through on the journey home.

There’s something special about Dingle town.

What it is, I’ve no idea – all I do know, is that it keeps reeling me back in, time and time again.

Maybe it’s the proximity to some of Ireland’s most soul-hugging scenery, or the fact that the town is buckling with a tonne of great restaurants and bars that buzz away long into the night.

Who knows.

The one thing I do know is that every 4 or 5 months, I’ll be pointing the car in the direction of deepest, darkest Kerry, and embarking upon the 10 hour round journey all over again.
