Dingle Food Festival, 2011

We’re getting ready for the food festival, with lots of last minute preparations.

Our taste trail specials will be popsicles – chocolate-dipped champagne and kerry strawberry sorbet popsicles as well as mango popsicles with wild Dingle blackberry.

I’ll also be giving a demonstration in the church on Saturday.

We hope to see you there!

Elderflower Champagne Sorbet?

I have this idea to bring elderflower champagne sorbet to Bloom in the Park, so today I went picking elderflowers! Sara, who will soon open Murphy’s seasonal shop in Tig Áine kindly offered up her elderflower trees, and the flowers are now fermenting in two containers in production. Fingers crossed it turns out OK! If it does, I’ll be sure to post a recipe!

Penguins at Dingle Ocean World

Manuela just gave me these photos she took from the open day at Dingle Ocean World, when they launched their new penguin exhibition.

I haven’t been down to see them yet, but Roisin was intrigued apparently. That being said, her biggest obsession at the moment is fish, so she was delighted for a stroll around the place.

Certainly, the penguins add another excuse for a visit, and it is worth calling in, since there’s a good hour or two of entertainment there for kids on a rainy day.

Funnily enough, the cooling system for the tank uses the same technology as our ice cream chiller, so our refrigeration guy managed to get a bit of business out of it.

Good to keep things local!

Davide

Any of you who have been coming into our Dingle shop for a while, might remember Davide who was with us some years back. He’s back living in Turin, Italy now (he’s a social worker doing good deeds in that city), but he’s in Dingle for a short holiday and came over for lunch. Not only that, he whipped up some gnocchi. Mmmmm! Turin is lucky to have him!

Maureen O’Hara Coming to Dingle

It looks like Maureen O’Hara will be coming to Dingle for a screening of the Quiet Man at the Dingle Film Festival. Come on down if you can! It’s a fun few days, especially for a cinephile.

Dingle Walking Festival

If you like the outdoors need an excuse to visit our beautiful part of the country, here it is: The Dingle Walking Festival, on this weekend. We hope to see you!

Competition for Fungie?

Fungie is clearly not the only mammal who finds Dingle an attractive place.

For the last few weeks, and seal has taken up residence on the pier next to my parent’s house in Cooleen.

I think it’s a pup or perhaps just a small one. In any case, he’s very, very cute.

Naturally he’s not there all the time, but if you want a chance to see him, walk along the breakwater where the Fungie boats are parked. Look for the old wreck of a boat. The slip is just in front of it.

Let’s hope he sticks around!
