This beautiful beach is at Inch on the Dingle Peninsula. Known as Inch Strand this idyllic beach featured in the film "Ryan's Daughter" and also "Playboy of the Western World". There is a story told that when they needed seagulls to fly up in "Ryan's Daughter" they had to release birds onto the beach because there weren't enough there!
The figures in the photo above are mostly tourists let loose from their coach for a quick wander (not us sadly).
From here you can look across to the Ring of Kerry where we were the day before. "I was looking back to see if she was looking back to see if I was looking back at her"! (Or something like that!)
What do you reckon to this bungalow? It sits on the mountain side above Inch Strand and looks out on the views above. We are thinking about renting this property for a holiday, maybe next year. Wouldn't you just like to walk out along that beach every day? There is a 3 mile stretch of beach here and I would definitely need an extra suitcase to bring home the finds washed up from across the other side of the world by the Atlantic Ocean.
