I love the Dingle peninsular too (especially the Connor Pass). I spent quite a bit of time one holiday tracing the route of the old railway (I'm into narrow gauge railways). My wife did complain when I left her parked outside the undertakers in Dingle while I explored: it's in the old station building!

We were up the Connor Pass with about 30 or 40 Harleys of all varieties on a rideout last summer, most of them had open pipes and the sound bouncing off the rock walls and echoing was incredible, I have never heard anything like it

Dingle's got 1500 inhabitants and 57 pubs, but you park the wife at the undertakers??! Not too subtle, Nigel.
What'd you say, "Wait for me here , my cupcake, at this quaint little funeral parlour. I may be gone for some time."?
I take it she was still there when you returned "quite a bit of time " later.
An all-day tour of an undertaker's establishment kept her out of mischief, did it? Would'nt want her venturing into one of those 57 nasty pubs for a bit of lunch now, would you?
I must say, I have newfound respect for the way you Brits are able to handle your wives!
Complain? I'll bet she did!

Then we went into Dingle, to one of those 57 pubs, and had a nice lunch.
