One beautiful view after another, punctuated by interesting ancient ruins, and of course sheep. We followed Rick Steves' drive guide for the most part, which worked out very well. One recommendation: there are few bathroom break opporotunities while on the loop. Highly recommend this area.

My daughter and I recently spent a wonderful day touring the Dingle Peninsula. Staying in Cork, we traveled trough west Cork to Killarney. There we took a short break and toured the town on foot. We saw the a line of jaunting cars awaiting passengers, Killarney Town Hall, the Church of Ireland Church as well as a narrow maze of... More

A trip with a guide who told us all about the peninsula and it's history. The guide was excellent bringing the past to life. The views were spectacular. Only downside was there were not enough stops for photo shoots.

Possibly the most photogenic spot in Ireland? One thing I've learned as I've traveled through Ireland is that it is a really beautiful country and wow, the Dingle Peninsula took my breath away. The circle route is only 30 km but there are lots of great places to stop and explore along the way. We went in September when most... More

We took the tour books recommendation to forego the ring of Kerry and go to the dingle peninsula instead- we were not disappointed!! it was the most beautiful scenery in all of Ireland! the cliffs, beaches, bee hive huts, cultural museum, windy roads, ruins were all gorgeous! we stayed for a day, but very easily could have stayed a week!...

We had two nights and about a day and half for sightseeing around Killarney. We decided to tour the Dingle Peninsula, as most guides indicated you could do the Dingle in less time than the Ring of Kerry. Some guides liked the Dingle better, and while we didn't get to the Ring of Kerry, I cannot directly compare the two.... More

We rented a house in Dingle thru VRBO.com for 4 weeks and were so happy we limited our Irish experience to this treasured place, because it offers everything we wanted -- spectacular scenery, great Traditional Irish music, fresh and local food. The village becomes crowded with mostly Irish travelers, some bus tours and international backpackers during the day but is... More

The Dingle Peninsula in Ireland is one of the most beautiful places on Earth with it's mountains, rocky shoreline, beaches, fields of sheep and cows and quaint towns. We found this peninsula more beautiful than the Ring of Kerry. There was a lot less traffic, much fewer tour buses trying to run you off the road and photo opportunities around... More

Every time I go there, it is raining but I still like to see the shops and the fishing boats. Cute little town to tour.
