The drive along the The Dingle Peninsula are some of the most scenic in all of Ireland! We drove from Kenmare to Dingle,just when we thought it couldn't be more beautiful we would come around a bend in the road and the view was even prettier than the last! I have some of my photos here https://www.etsy.com/shop/BonnieRPhotography and more here...... More

Drop in for an Irish designed and made handbag at Conor Holdens as you come out of Dingle, Great hospitality and there are a fantastic pair of sea otters on the beach there. The rest of the coastline is dramatic and has many photo opportunities with high waves and... More

We visited Ireland on a 8 day whirlwind visit my husband and I. Dingle Peninsula was just beautiful. The rolling green hills, the water. We were surprised with wonderful weather (70's). The people were wonderfully nice and everywhere we stopped there was someone willing to tell us a story about this ruin or that building or this lake. Wish I... More

I enjoyed traveling to the peninsula. There are several island offshore. The homes are small. You can image the isolation of living there a century ago.

This drive was way beyond anything I had ever anticipated. The stops along the way were very interesting. The old structures, pubs, people, sites, walks, VIEWS..... How could I not want to do this again. My sister and I fell in love with the Dingle Peninsula!

Mountains are beautiful and have great views of the water below from ?Connor Pass. On peninsula went out to farthest point west on the cliff road - really picturesque drive. Beach west of Inch was nice... More

Any trip to Ireland would not be complete without a trip to the Dingle Peninsula. Driving the "Dingle peninsula loop" as outlined in Rick Steves' Ireland guidebook is an outstanding experience. Beautiful old stone forts, beehive huts, churches, etc. are scattering along the route, along with beautiful views of the Blasket Islands, cliffs, the ocean, hidden beaches, etc, makes for... More

We spent a day early in Sept driving this spectacular coast of the Dingle Peninsula. The crashing waves and hillsides of sheep and heather were breathtaking. We visited a somewhat informal famine remains homestead packed with information and reached the most westerly point in Europe - any further and you would be in St John's Newfoundland. We visited a Romanesque... More

We loved the Dingle pub music scene and the rugged ocean drive. We tried to eat a seafood chowder each evening.
