Our work with Adventures in Missions centers around the school year, with September being the start of a new work year. I wanted to take a team trip to start the year off, and as everyone loves to camp, we booked two nights at a campground on the Dingle Peninsula. It’s one of the most beautiful places in Ireland, and about 3 hours drive from our house.
We started off outside of Castlegregory on the Peninsula, at the Anchor Caravan Park. Located in a bay, it has a privately accessed beach where a mountain river feeds into the North Atlantic.
The weather was too windy and rainy for hiking, so we took a day trip into Dingle via Conor Pass, the highest mountain road in Ireland. Standing at the top of the summit, the wind was so strong it held our bodies up as we leaned over the ledge, looking into a valley of glacial loughs and green meadows.
After a visit to the Dingle Aquarium and ice cream at Murphy’s, we drove to Slea Head and the Blasket Islands.
