I was being driven through the Loop Head Peninsula and we drove through this very sleepy town called Carrigaholt. We stopped for lunch at the Long Dock cafe and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were being showed around by the Loop Head Tourism folks, but I’ll tell you the hospitality was real. I think you’ll find the same when you visit, this village along the Wild Atlantic Way.
