Spectacular views and vistas. A nice less traveled road that allows you to stop and enjoy the vistas. Stopped in Brandon's creek for a beer on the way back to dingle Loved it.

My husband and I spent five nights in the Dingle Peninsula, we took our time and had no plans at all. We had no trouble finding a hotel or B & B, ate at local pubs and met many wonderful people. Ireland has so many kind hearted people, first day out in the rental car we had a flat and... More

A lovely peninsular if you have the time to drive round and stop off at the beaches and take in the views (and an icecream!). Not something to be rushed and as there is a lot of driving and roads are slow, allow all day (or longer if you can stop off en route).

We stayed in Dingle for 1 night in a great B&B, we did the insanely expensive dolphin trip 45 Euros for 2 adults and 2 kids seemed a bit like exploitation to me, also with 8 other boats doing the same thing. Not to much else in the town really, apart from tacky tourist & ice cream shops, 2 pubs... More

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
