Now here's something a little out-of-the-way: an Irish Whiskey Tasting Session in the Muckross Park Hotel, Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland (and in other Venues across Ireland on request).

Based throughout the year in the Muckross Park Hotel, close to Killarney National Park and Muckross House, it is situated on the Ring of Kerry and close to all accommodations in Killarney. This is a place to go to in Ireland to enjoy a fun, relaxed and informative evening. If I were you I would stay at the Muckross Park Hotel and avoid the travel.

Fungie, the Dolphin of Dingle Bay

The dolphin is one of Ireland’s most fascinating mammals and Fungie is the most famous. He is a fully- grown bottlenose who is 13 feet (4 meteres) long and weighs about 500 lbs or around one-quarter tonne.
Fungie was first noticed in 1984 when Paddy Ferriter, the Dingle Harbour lighthouse keeper, began watching a lone wild dolphin escort the town's fishing boats to and from port. 
Later that year, it became officially recorded that Fungie was a permanent resident of the entrance channel to Dingle and the self-appointed “pilot” of the fleet. 
Over the years Fungie has developed from a timid but inquisitive observer of the human visitors into a playful, though mischievous, companion.  From observation of marks on his body, it seems that he does 'interact' with other whales, dolphins or porpoises, proving perhaps he is neither hermit nor outcast from his own kind, but rather that he is simply content to spend most of his time in and around Dingle Bay.
