Our second course consisted of two round slices of delectable foie gras, its buttery rich texture complemented by a bed of pickled beetroot and celeriac crisps with an aubergine mousse. Next up was fish cooked in the healthiest of ways — a roll of poached mackerel stuffed with olive tapenade and topped with red caviar. Photo Courtesy of Columbia Hillen. The real surprise of the evening came from a combination of slow-cooked kid goat and a goat meat-and-cheese-stuffed pastry, with a vegetable medley of carrots, broccoli stems and purple potatoes.

Goat does not often feature on Irish menus, so it was a delight in itself, as was the news that both meat and cheese were sourced from a local farmer just outside Belfast. Their cheese platter was next and while not overly extensive, it reflected a diversity of northern Irish morsels. The clouds billow over the lakes or hills, showers follow, and within minutes, brilliant sunshine and rainbows emerge.
During the month of April, when I biked in Ireland, there can be more rain and cooler weather than May to September. In good weather, the trip to the Gap of Donloe is an idyllic bike and hike excursion from Killarney.
The gap is a four-mile trail that winds along the ridge above steep gorges and five deep glacial lakes. The Dingle Peninsula is a meeting place of sorts, where wave-carved cliffs and rolling hills fend off a moody, restless Atlantic, and the memories of sea battles merge with the scent of wildflowers.
The natural stage of the Dingle itself, often veiled in mist, enlivened by the pounding surf, is a draw for travelers in search of solitude, renewal, and natural beauty. Every village has a pub like this one. I found music and camaraderie in many pubs along my bike trail. I would take a seat, call for a drink, and listen as the tune was handed on from fiddle to flute, from strings to pipe.
Toe tapping began and I could feel the rhythm deepen as it went around, strengthening and gaining in confidence. I often found myself happily lost in the intricate melodies.
One memorable day, after six hours of pedaling over the hills through the soft Irish mist, I heard a hiss from my front tire and knew I had a problem. My only companions, black and white cows plodding across the road, were indifferent. Enviously, I thought about the pampered guests on the organized tours.
Had I booked my trip with a bicycle company, a support vehicle and guide would have come to my rescue to repair my tire, while I joked and commiserated with my fellow cycling companions. It was time to break for hot coffee and a warm scone—or perhaps, a reviving Guinness. In the distance, at the crest of the next hill, I could see white cottages with gray slate roofs.
Through the thin clouds one chimney rose above the others, pouring out a fragrant plume of peat smoke from a turf fire.
