One last shout-out from the recent trip to Ireland: The Pax Guest House
] in Dingle, County Kerry. This is a view from the back deck of the house. While in Ireland we stayed in a mix of B&Bs and hotels, some less expensive and some more expensive, but the Pax Guest House was by far the best place we stayed at during the trip. The rooms and bathrooms have been modernized recently and felt luxurious. (If you can get one, ask for a room with a view of Dingle harbor. Well worth the extra charge.) Breakfast was excellent, with scones and clotted cream to die for! The proprietor John O'Farrell and his staff were always charming and attentive. We wish we had planned more days in Dingle. We were truly regretful to have to leave the Pax Guest House. Its reputation as one of the best places to stay in Ireland is well deserved.
