Having paid for breakfast as part of the B&B price really helped me get up in the morning--that, and serious jet lag confusion. Bacon in Ireland is a lot thicker, saltier, and tastier than generic American bacon. It's more like 1/8" thick slabs of ham...

We stopped at one of the older sites on the island--the Gallarus Oratory. It's name, in Irish, means "The Church of the Place of the Foreigners", its built only of stone, and it's thought to date back to sometime between 600-900AD. There were no pews, no art, and I'm guessing the builders of this church would have considered an ideal attendance to be in the range of 8-10 people.
For dinner, we took advantage of the "early dinner" (read: jet lagged tourist) menu at The Chart House in downtown Dingle. It was very nice, and neither of us fell asleep in our food. In fact, we even managed to go back to Murphy's Pub to listen to live Irish music.
