Still can’t get over these cliffs. If there weren’t a million other places to see still, I’d go back here and to Killarney National Park next!

Dunquin Pier ist a beautiful spot to visit 🤩 and the way to Blasket Islands 🏞️
Dunquin meaning "Caon's stronghold", is a Gaeltacht village in west County Kerry 😍 Dunquin lies at the most westerly tip of the Dingle Peninsula, overlooking the Blasket Islands and really worth a visit. The most western point of Ireland is closeby 😀
There is dramatic cliff scenery, with a view of the Blasket Islands, where Peig Sayers lived.🗺️ A museum in the village tells the story of the Blaskets and the lives of the people who lived there including the well-known writers of the island, which includes Sayers, Tomás Ó Criomhthain, and Muiris Ó Súilleabháin. 🏛️ In 1588, when the Spanish Armada returned via Irelandmany ships sought shelter in the Blasket Sound — the area between Dún Chaoin and the Islands — and some were wrecked there.🗻 A memorial stands on the cliffs overlooking the site. Dunquin is located on the Dingle Way, which is a 179km circular walking trail which takes in much of the Dingle peninsula⭐⭐
Went for a late night stroll and stumbled upon the infamous Ha’penny Bridge. We were lucky enough to see the beauty lit up at night.
The bridge was built in 1816 and was the first iron bridge created in Ireland. Its original name was the Liffey Bridge but was changed to Ha’penny because until 1919 it was a half-penny charge to cross it.
As one of the most significant symbols of Dublin, the Ha’penny Bridge was opened in 1816 and was the only pedestrian bridge on the Liffey before the Millennium opened in 2000.
