Castlegregory, Cappatigue, Kerry, Ireland

After we arrived at Shores Country House and got settled in we started thinking about dinner.

In 2007 we went to Tomasin's in Stradbally for dinner. This visit Annette advised us that it had changed ownership and she had gotten mixed reviews. She gave us two alternatives in the village of Castlegregory that was about 2.5 miles away.

Castlegregory is a quaint village on a tiny peninsula. The roads are like a maze and of course there are no road signs.

We finally stopped an old man and asked him where the restaurants were that Annette had recommended.

It turned out one was right in front of us. But as he old man explained that to us he opined that he wouldn't go to either of those two places. Of course we had to ask him what he recommended.

He recommended Spillane's at the very end of the peninsula. The food and service was great and afterwards our granddaughter walked across the parking lot to the shore and played in the sand and surf. While you're on the Dingle peninsula, be sure to try the locally brewed Crean's beer.
