Discovery Channel in Dingle

Discovery channel filming me The Discovery channel is filming in Dingle as part of a series of great walks (the Mount Brandon walk is one of them). Discovery filming

They came into us this morning and interviewed me and filmed myself and my brother inside our shop. (That’s your’s truly above with the smile frozen on the face.)

It’s great that they are giving focus to hill-walking as the landscape here is so beautiful, and there is never any harm in a bit of publicity for ourselves. We were delighted to help out when they asked us. It will be interesting to see if the ice cream segment makes it into the final piece, and whether I committed any verbal gaffes. I did find it fun, though…

The only shame was that it was a bit disruptive to our regular customers (who made themselves scarce at the first sign of the camera), and I appreciate their patience!

One would certainly think that such a program will do tourism in Dingle no harm, though this time of year one wonders if it needs it…

  1. Did Brandon ridge last weekend, but was abysmally out of shape and suffered with aching thighs for five subsequent days. Ouch.

    Great walk though, especially the arrette over to Brandon Peak and then descending along the Pater Noster Lakes.

    WW II enthusiasts should note that there is a crashed German Condor on the ridge above Faha/Cloghane.

  2. Kieran,
    Love your Blog. Been to Dingle many times and walked Mt. Brandon on a few occasions. Have been looking for the Discovery Channel piece on Brandon, but to no avail. Any info on the airing of this show in the USA?
