The busy Summer 2019 season is well and truly here with the beautiful hedgerows full of colour and the red fuschia and orange montbretia, the foxglove, the daisies and the yellow buttercups in full bloom. The rural bohereens are a riot of colour and make quite a sight to see as we are driving along the roads admiring the scenery on our tours.

On the Dingle Peninsula, Aedán still has some baby lambs which love to be held and it a great opportunity to see the real original Clocháns or Beehive Huts on his farm which are associated with the monastic site on Skellig Michael where the Monks lived and a continuation of the pilgrimage route, Cósain na Naomh, the Way of the Saint. You can also see the stone cottages with interconnecting rooms built around the 8th Century and in as good condition today despite the harsh weather conditions endured over the many centuries on this particular side of Slea Head on the Dingle Peninsula.
