If you’re going to Dingle, Ireland (and you should), you must make sure to go to Murphy’s Ice Cream shop on the main street (the Strand). You’ll probably be served by one of the nicest people you’ve met in your life, and there will be a line and people inside no matter how gusty or chilly the Dingle Bay weather may be. You’ll know Murphy’s from it’s bright blue paint, and once you’re inside, grab a napkin to catch the inevitable drool that will flow from your mouth once you start gazing at the menu. Homemade ice cream can be great or mediocre, and a European milkshake (nevermind a Latin American one) can be a tricky treat to ask for. The folks at Murphy’s, however, have it all down, and they take the cake, the candles, and lick the plate. The shop only offers ice cream and coffee, but you’ll certainly find something in their vast array of freezer-storage. The ice cream is creamy and decadent, and the flavors change all the time – sample a few before deciding, even if your intrepid writer here stuck with (delicious, velvety) chocolate. There are takeaway tubs, but if you’re traveling, you might be woofing down your ice cream delight quicker than you’d like in order to make sure it doesn’t melt. You can also get your ice cream served in fabulous homemade waffle cones, but I prefer mine either in a cup or blended with milk. Dingle is a beautiful, wonderful place to visit, and the fact that they’ve got great ice cream along with the nicest people on the planet and some of the most beautiful scenery on Earth? Maybe I should move there:)

The fishing town of Dingle is a great place to revive your senses. Horse-back riding over the green hills bordering the town is exhilarating, and taking a brisk walk along the Dingle Bay (or even a picnic by the lighthouse – my personal rec) is a lovely life experience. I did swim in the bay with Fungi, the wild dolphin who took up residence in the bay, but I wouldn’t suggest it, just because I now regret what this does to the dolphin. Dingle boasts the type of people who invite you into their homes, yards, and on random trips into the countryside without a second thought. Paul’s, on main street, had lively entertainment. I traded a pint of strawberries for a pint of beer in Dingle, and ended up in song with the barkeep. One of the best bits of Ireland, hands down.
