Yesterday, I had the good fortune to be in a beautiful spot on the Atlantic coast while the sun shone. Ballybunion (Irish: Baile an Bhuinneánaigh) is a coastal village in County Kerry, Ireland, 9 miles from the town of Listowel. I have no recollection of ever being here before. The tourist route from Limerick usually takes you to Tralee via Listowel where the main attraction would be the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. My first impression of Ballybunion would place it on-par with towns like Bundoran in Donegal or Courtown in Wexford. In the summer, Ballybunion attracts many families and young people to enjoy the sandy beach, warm Atlantic waters (me arse!) and the pubs along the high street. Nearby cliffs offer excellent scenery. Sometimes dolphins may be seen in the waters. The beaches near Ballybunion are a popular surfing site. Of course there are the usual beachside Seaweed Baths, featuring sea water with kelp. In the summertime, locals cook periwinkles and serve them up in small paper bags along with a dose of salt and a pin to extract the small sea snails. The village itself contains mostly pubs and amusement arcades, fast food restaurants, children's playground, a supermarket, Garda Station and a statue of Bill Clinton. To be fair though, the town is beautifully kept. All the buildings are well preserved and flower baskets are plentiful.
