Do yourself a favor and drive around the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry. Once you've reached the town of Dingle, make a right and drive on R559. Take the turn to the small road to take you to Brandon Creek too (stick to the coast). The views on the whole drive are spectacular. There are many pull outs to stop... More

We wanted to hike part of the Dingle Way while we were there in May. We had four days on the peninsula and did three day-hikes, plus one day of driving to see sights. Our traveling companions drove us to our starting point each day, and met us at our ending point. We did several of the southern and western... More

Go stretch your legs and view the peninsula from its rooftop. While there traverse over to nearby Stradbally Mountain. Don't forget your flask and sandwiches

Just returned from a Shearings coach holiday which included an excursion to the Dingle peninsula. This tour was the best trip that we experienced. The coastal road was amazing with magnificent scenery and a very dramatic rugged rocky coastline. We also had a tour of the Ring of Kerry which was also scenic but the dingle Peninsula was the best... More

We opted for Dingle Peninsula tour instead of the Ring of Kerry as we heard the scenery was about the same and we ran out of time so we had to choose one. Having said that, I will go to the Ring when I return to Killarney as everyone raved about that day tour. Dingle was nice - we booked... More

If you've a mind for some enjoyable driving, rent a car, get the insurance, and see if you can drive the posted speed limits all the way out to Dingle. Hilariously, the limits are around 60 MPH the entire way, though you're driving this amazingly windy, driveway-wide (in places) road that is better suited for half that speed. Personally, I... More

Absolutely stunning, the highlight of our week in Ireland. We should have stayed here. We were lucky to have a sunny day. Slea head is breathtaking, Conor Pass is majestic (and reminds us of Wales), Dingle town is buzzing, the archaeology is interesting ( apart from the fort which was closed and the signs were not friendly) and the beaches...

It was suggested to us that we do the Dingle Peninsula instead of Ring of Kerry. We thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are driving yourselves in Ireland, give your driver(s) a break and take the van ride to see Dingle. These are the most narrow roads we encountered in our 9 days in Ireland and I cannot imagine driving them... More
