Driving the Dingle Peninsula was our most favorite drive during our stay in southwest Ireland. There truly are 50 shades of green. Not only is it beautiful countryside, but there are numerous historic sites and ruins to see without all the crowds as in other areas of Ireland. It's a photographer's paradise.

The dingle peninsula was undoubtably one of the prettiest places that we saw saw on our one month trip through Ireland and Scotland. Wish we would have had more time to explore and swim and take pictures - two days was definitely not enough.

When you visit the island of Maui, everyone says you must drive the road to Hana. People do it once and after the long long long drive...and you make it to the end of the road and say; "That's it?" Well, I'd have to say the same for the Dingle Peninsula. It's a long long long drive that's kinda pretty,... More

Worth every second of the drive!! You will never see a peninsula like it! Near the actual point of Slea Head you could stop to get coffee and I was able to buy authentic stone welcome signs which were a great addition to our home :) Not your typical souvenir. Be sure to go down to the little beach you... More

This is by far the most spectacular place to see! It is only 30 km I believe for the whole loop and my family and I spent 7 hours on just 19 km!! This is because there is so much to see. If you do go on this stop at this little beach area you will see a bunch of... More

The Ring of Kerry is hard to beat but the Dingle Peninsula is a superb alternative. Starting at majestic Inch strand and then working your way up the coast to Dingle and then Dun Chaoin were you get a spectacular view of the Blasket Islands. A superb drive (or cycle if you are feeling hardy)

While staying at Killarney, we elected to do the Dingle Peninsula rather than the more heavily touristy Ring of Kerry. We weren't sure which to do at first, but were very pleased with our choice, which was based on the opinions of several people we had spoken to who had done both drives, and some locals. It was spectacular...we elected... More

The Dingle Peninsula is more than just the town of Dingle. Drive the Wild Atlantic Way and you'll see some amazing views. The roads are often narrow and move away from two-lanes to that dreaded in-between state. Beware Connor Pass! Although the road is in excellent condition and it actually has some sort of barrier to keep you from flying... More

We toured the Dingle area with Tim Collins. Tim knows the history, archeology, and plants of the area. A real bargain.

I visited Dingle 2 years ago during a visit to Ireland. While I was unable to stay in Dingle for more than a day visit, I loved the atmosphere. The town is full of shops and pubs. Be sure to find the ice cream shop that offers the speciality ice creams....Baileys Cream was my favorite. The drive to Dingle is... More
