Walk around the town of Dingle and you can’t help but be tempted through the doors of some of the nicest shops in the country. One of my favourites is The Little Cheese Shop, which you’ll find on Grey’s Lane just off Green Street. If cheese is your thing then this place is pure paradise.

The shop stocks both Irish and continental cheese and wheels of Appenzell and Raclette compete for space with Comté, Cáis Dubh and Knockdrinna goats’ cheese. These are squeezed in beside Ardsallagh, Derg and lots of brie – and this is just a tiny sample of what’s stocked in this cheesy heaven.
