Video: Exploring Dingle with a Local Craftsman

Seán Daly, the best crystal cutter in Dingle, took me on a walk through his town. (Our Best of Ireland in 14 Days tour group visited him this morning at his crystal workshop, and this afternoon, he grabbed a couple of hours to explore with me.) There’s something charming about small-town Ireland — where the people’s connection to their culture and to their town is so vivid. And get this: When you say Seán’s name, Seán Daly, you’re saying “chandelier” in French!

This is Day 71 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.
