Let the Gathering begin on the Dingle Peninsula.

We are having a fun , week in Fentons with lots of happy people. On Wednesday we had Pat O Connor and his Rick Steves group for dinner. I arranged for Felicity Hayes McCoy, Author of ‘ A House on an Irish Hillside’ to pop in and tell us a little about her life in London and Dingle. Felicity’s Husband Wilf Judd , an English Opera Director took some photographs of the evening. Hopefully, they will be on the The House on an Irish Hillsides Facebook shortly.

Last night we were honoured to have an 93 year old and his wonderful family dine with us . His name is Mick Carney and he is celebrating the Gathering on the Great Blasket today.He is the oldest living native Blasket Islander and he is launching his book this evening, ‘From the Great Blasket to America , a story of his life from when he left the Island in 1937. We wish him well and hope the Carney Clan have a wonderful gathering.

It is a beautiful sunny day in Dingle today so it is time for me to sign off and do some gardening.

28 years in Business @dinglefentons.

We are back at the helm in Fentons. We are feeling quite chuffed as we have had a makeover we think we look very pretty. All those who have passed through the doors in the last two days  love our new look ! I will post some photographs in the next few weeks. We are 28 years in business this year and just thought a new colour scheme was the way forward. I chose a lovely Sophie Conran wallpaper for a feature wall and then everything else fell into place. I had great help from my Darling Husband John and my Painter Niall Kennedy aka Goosle. The restaurant has a Holiday/Nautical theme with lots of cushions, buntings and mad Tulips at the moment. The walled patio garden is work in progress, the trees, shrubs and  the trailing rose  were all pruned in Spring time.We will continue  the rest of the gardening when the storm blows over.

We have lots of great ideas for our menu, and some great value wines. We hope to reintroduce our two course dinner and wine for 2 for 60€ in the next few days , watch this space.

Oíche Mhaith agaibh.

Gardening, in Fentons,Dingle, July,

It was time last week no matter the weather to get get a handle on the garden. Weather has not been kind to us this summer, but the pressure was on. We normally have a patio full of flowers by July so I knew something had to be done. I am now looking out at the patio and I some herbs planted, baskets of Strawberries and flowers. I need a sunny day or two now to finish the task so fingers crossed that will happen too.
