Coumeenoole Bay and Dunmore Head on the Dingle Peninsula, Ireland

Dunmore Head, located on the western tip of Ireland’s Dingle Peninsula. In the foreground is Coumeenoole Beach, where portions of the film Ryan’s Daughter were filmed. I shot this photo while sitting on the front lawn of a small cafe atop Slea Head, which with Dunmore Head, forms the westernmost point of Ireland. Under brilliant sunshine, I eased into a wooden rocking chair and spent a leisurely hour sipping coffee and salivating over a fresh-baked scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam. In all my years of travel, I cannot think of a restaurant or cafe with a more enticing view than this one.
