However, like any good, mildly curiously narcissistic person... she later on went to Google herself only to find out that halfway across the country another person (presumably of similar world-shattering genius and creativity) had also stumbled upon the same name at some point. Yup, down in Tralee there is a barbershop with the same name as myself! (For those of you who don't get the pun in my name have a look at my "About Me" section ).
Now I had long ago forgotten where my barbershop doppleganger was located, but whilst holidaying in Kerry this week my boyfriend surprised me by driving by it and asking me if I wanted to have a look in! Of course I did! There was just one friendly lady inside working away but I asked her if she would mind if I took a few photos of my blog so I could show you all. She said no problem provided she wasn't in them (and the customer in her chair joked that I should make sure I didn't get him as he was meant to be somewhere else at work at the time!). So here you have it, a little peak into the other Barbereile here!
The shop front. Nothing too fancy, nice and local.
The interior. Look at that gorgeous stone wall with the fireplace - And those fantastic huge wooden mirrors!
And I just had to take a shot of this cheeky chappy! He's such a wonderful touch, a friendly dog by the fireplace welcoming in the customers.
So there you have it. I'd suggest for anyone in Tralee to pop in - tell them Barber Eile sent you!
