We were so lucky to be able to drive the Dingle Peninsula on a sunny day. We had several stops for pictures, and mini hikes. Jaw dropping scenery. Pack a lunch, wish we would have. We did not have time to do the entire Ring of Kerry, but I don't see how it could get any better than this trip.... More

We took two day trips to Dingle, staying nearby at Friars Glen near Killarney National Park. We would recommend this drive to all visitors. The views and scenery were what one expects in Ireland and amazing! It was by far one of our favorite parts of a 16 day trip through Ireland. We drove it ourselves and stopped often. Be... More

On the opposite side from the Ring of Kerry is the Dingle Peninsula, no wonder the guides said they thought it was better than the ring. It had some of the most beaches adjoining to the cliff's that were simply amazing

We spent the whole day exploring the area. This was not the height of the tourist season and the roads were quiet and easily managed. We discovered the little-known Caherconree Pass that takes you from the N86 in the village of Camp along an un-numbered paved road left over the hills direct to the R561 at Aughills. This is well...

Lovely drive around the windy roads and hills, we were blessed with a cloudless sky and a scenic view unmatched by anywhere. I do think best seen on a good clear day but the town of dingle is lovely as a stop off point, loved the variety of colored buildings

Take the time to do the Dingle Peninsula even instead of the Ring of Kerry. Beautiful views and less traffic. Also, numerous local pubs and places to stop that are really worth the stop.

Amazing beaches, craggy cliffs and coastal history. We loved the Beehive huts and beautiful views. The town of Dingle was picturesque with great restaurants, pubs, shops and adventure tours.

Where to start? Just go there. There is really so much to see, beautiful landscapes, amazing sunsets, great diversity of flora and fauna. All you need is a sense of curiosity, probably a pair of half-decent binoculars and a little preparatory work in the library or on the internet. Then bring the wellies, some rain-gear and you are all set... More

We stayed in a cottage, high on a hill overlooking fields and the bay. With a huge sky and beautiful view it was soooo relaxing.,! The coastal line was gorgeous and I love Ireland - just for the fact you can drive into the beaches..!

This is an excellent area travelers must go see. Make sure when you go here to have a rental car and drive the Conor Pass and Slea head, you want regret this drive at all. The small town at the bottom of Dingle is also very nice with places to eat and small shops.
