Driving from Killarney towards Dingle brings you along some of the most beautiful coastal roads imaginable. It is late October and the weather is unseasonably warm. Dingle itself is a nice town and worth a visit but for me it was just a quick stop before heading towards the other side of the peninsula towards Ballyferriter and the charming little pub called Tig Bhric.
The pub is located outside the town of Ballyferriter which is a Gaelteacht area where most locals speak Irish as their primary language.
The fact you are in a Gaelteach area is pretty obvious because the patrons were all conversing in Irish. One patron was randomly launching in to old Irish songs entertaining us and another randomly got up up and played the accordion (not so entertaining).
Unfortunately they were all drinking Carlsberg and the like as opposed to the house brewed Cask Ale. If Cask ale is not your thing there is also a bottle collection. My wife had Franziskaner and I also noticed some bottles from Dungarvan brewing company.
Unfortunately the bar man (Peter?) was on his own as Adrienne had gone out so I did not get to see the brewery. I could have if I had waited around but I ran out of time and I had a camp site to get to before they closed check in for the night.
I was sorry I did not get to stay longer but I was able to nurse my one pint of cask ale for an hour.
