In the Dog House

Dog House, Dingle, Ireland, 2015

Dingle is the name of a beautiful rocky peninsula in southwestern Ireland, but it is also the name of a town on that peninsula’s southern coast.  In fact, it is the only town on that peninsula, and with a population of less than 2,000 people (in 2011, anyway), it is not a very large one.
Still, it is a pleasant place to visit, with some interesting things to see.

When I’m traveling, I often look for unusual or amusing things to photograph, and so it was on my 2015 visit with this portable hot dog stand, the “Dog House.”  The sign across the top says “Best in the West,” but as I didn’t eat any dogs there, who am I to contest that claim??? – along with the other sign that says “Ireland’s Only Chili Dog!”  (If you don’t like chili dogs, I see that you can get cheese dogs and classic dogs there, too.)
For what it’s worth, I have read that the best hot dogs to be had in all of Iceland (yes, Iceland – not Ireland) are sold by a street vendor operating near the port in Reykjavik – so perhaps there is some merit to the claims made by this particular Irish establishment.
