For a good traveler, the best “sights” in a town like Dingle are its people. Tonight, our Best of Ireland in 14 Days tour group will gather in Curran’s Pub for a traditional music session. I popped in during the day to talk with Mr. Curran, learn the history of his place, and enjoy it when it’s sleepy. It’s fun that so many of the shops and pubs here are called the names of the people who run them today (often after many, many generations). Real people…you must connect with the people to experience Ireland. And in Ireland, that’s easy.
This is Day 72 of my “100 Days in Europe” series. As I travel with Rick Steves’ Europe Tours, research my guidebooks, and make new TV shows, I’m reporting on my experiences across Europe. Still to come: England, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, and more. Thanks for joining me here on my blog and via Facebook.
