Lost Coastlines

After a weekend trip to the beautiful County Kerry, it's official—I am in love with Ireland. These photos were taken on the first day of our trip where we went on a small driving tour along the coastlines of the Dingle Peninsula. Our tour guide kept saying that it was the "most beautiful day of the year" and he was probably right. It was bright, sunny, and breezy the whole day and I was so excited with some of the landscape shots I was able to capture.

We used Killarney as our home base and stayed in a cute little bed and breakfast right outside of town. The town centre had some great pubs, but our favorite meal of the trip was at a place called Murphy's that had the most amazing cottage pie, beef and Guinness stew, and locally brewed Irish lager.
The only awkward part of the trip was when we found ourselves in a tourist trap bar filled with a (name-tag wearing!!!) senior citizen American tour group that had just filed in to enjoy the "local culture." What I don't think they realized is that a traditional Irish pub isn't exactly authentic when it's only customers are 100 half-pint drinking American tourists...

And it was in that moment that Andrew and I felt a little bit more like locals than American exchange students...and it was great.
