This beats Ring of Kerry in my opinion. The distance is shorter, the scenery is more dramatic and if you are lucky and catch the sun, the blues of the ocean, the greens of the sloping hills and the drive will take your breath away. Absolutely recommend it.

My mom and I drove all over Ireland and this was such a cute fishing village. I would love to stay at a Bed and Breakfast here. It's right on the ocean and has spectacular views. I bought a beautiful scarf from a local weaver Lisbeth Mulcahy. There are also lots of local craftsmanship shops to bring home that unique... More

Absolutely beautiful area of Ireland. We only had one day and were staying in Adare. My advice is to spend at least one night or two in Dingle, allowing yourself more time to experience the Dingle peninsula. There are many spots to stop at and spend some time, even just relaxing and admiring the beautiful ocean scenery. Definitely a top... More

Dingle a great town with many shops, pubs and many excellent Restaurants. You can't go wrong. Traditional music this town has it. Excellent coastal scenery along the coastal road. Definitely take a drive on Connor's pass, with views you won't forget.

This is the northern most peninsula in County Kerry. It ends at the western most end at Dunmore Head. This is also the western most part of Europe.

The countryside is stunning.The town of Dingle is interesting-but takes second place to the scenery.We saw the town under poor weather conditions.It has a good number of fascinating shops-including the hardware shops that are also bars.The mountain passes,soaring cliffs ,rocky slopes and pounding Atlantic surf make this a day trip to remember

Glad I hired a driver to take us on this tour because it gave me the freedom to look and admire. John took us to the Lord Vestry's manor (now a school) to see the Ancient Ogham stones, the famine cottage, 2,000 year old beehive huts, Slea Head, beaches, lunch at Murphy's Pub in Ballyferriter, Gallarus Oratory, and back through...

We stayed in Killarney and drove to the Dingle Peninsula to the town of Dingle. What a beautiful drive but not for the inexperienced driver as roads are very narrow at times. The town of Dingle was lovely with lots of pubs, restaurants and shops.

While some might say we missed the panoramas of the ocean so near to the drive, we actually enjoyed the mist that added to our sense of timelessness in this ancient Irish setting.
