I can't tell you how much I appreciated having Ann O. from Kingdom Guided Tours as our tourist guide. From the very start (having picked us up at our out-of-the way accomodation), Ann displayed a desire to make us feel special. For each of our three tours, she willingly brought us for our morning coffee and light breakfast before beginning... More

We loved the area...so quaint and relaxing. The drive around the peninsula was spectacular. Because of fog on the morning we were leaving, we were not able to drive up the Connor Pass. After talking with the most friendly locals, it's highly recommended you take the drive up but not down the other side...to dangerous for tourist.

Compared to the ring of kerry the dingle peninsula is far less developed. Hence much less tourists, large buses and small roads (often one car wide roads) are what you expect of Ireland. It is a pleasure to see, walk in and drive in.

NOT TO BE MISSED. But you knew that. Just when you thought you'd seen it all, you turn another corner and are amazed by another spectacular view. Be sure you're comfortable driving on the left side before you try this drive because the roads are incredibly narrow and there is a lot of traffic coming the other way. And after... More

Absolutely breathtaking! That includes driving if you are used to highways & left lane driving. But, these roads caused us to take as many bus tours as possible. No one really warns you about harrowing driving experiences. So go but be aware!

Magnificent sea coast views. Makes you want to stop at a real estate office and try to buy something. Definitely more pleasant than the Rings of Kerry--unless you are on a tour bus. Who wants to meet tour buses on one-lane roads? In the spring the pastel colours are breath-taking.

this peninsula is a great introduction to Ireland because so unique. having a sunset on Waymont, overlooking the peninsula is magic. swimming in the too cold water for our standards is for the daring. Dingle is a cute little village with a great Super Value store for picnic stuff. walks for hours along the peninsula

If you are visiting Ireland, make SURE you visit the Dingle Peninsula! This was one of the highlights of our trip! The scenery and beauty were amazing. There are many attractions along the loop road and lots of natural scenery as well. I wish I could go back and stay a week!

Make sure you drive clockwise around the peninsula. This is the most stunning area we came to in over a 1000 miles of driving. The entire Dingle Peninsula is just truly amazing. Especially if you're from central Illinois.

Rick favors Dingle and it's peninsula over the Ring of Kerry. My impression were the opposite. Dwindle town was not the quaint little town I expected bot a mass of tourists and shops to serve them filled with mediocre goods and if judged by the restaurant I ate in mediocre food. Parking was truly a pain. Admittedly I did this... More
