RS Ireland: Dingle Crystal Cutting, Dingle Peninsula Drive, Great Blasket Center and Hike, Gallarus Oratory, Kilmalkedor Church and St James Folk Music Concert

Sean Daly honed his crystal-cutting skills at Waterford before setting up his own Dingle Crystal. Sean also shares his love of motorcycles with his buddy Bono.
Buses on the Dingle Peninsula Loop must be driven in a clockwise direction and it is advisable for cars to do the same!
The Great Blasket Centre demonstrates the harsh life of the Blasket Islanders as well as the Gaelic Culture.
We had great fun negotiating stiles to hike around the centre
The Gallarus (rhymes with walrus) Oratory is a well-preserved early Christian church built about 1300 years ago.
The 12th-century Irish Romanesque Church of Kilmalkedar fell into ruin during the Reformation. 
We ended our day with a yummy Sticky Toffee Pudding and a folk concert at St James Church.
