Joe and Caroline Daly spread happiness in the beautiful part of the world that is Valentia Island, Co Kerry – as if you needed more than the stunning scenery of this little corner of Ireland to make you feel good. But when you sit on the terrace here, gazing out over green fields and the sea view, eating homemade ice cream produced from the milk of the Daly’s pedigree herd of Fresians, it’s hard to imagine feeling better. This is happiness in a double whammy cornet full!
