This drive was way beyond anything I had ever anticipated. The stops along the way were very interesting. The old structures, pubs, people, sites, walks, VIEWS..... How could I not want to do this again. My sister and I fell in love with the Dingle Peninsula!

Any trip to Ireland would not be complete without a trip to the Dingle Peninsula. Driving the "Dingle peninsula loop" as outlined in Rick Steves' Ireland guidebook is an outstanding experience. Beautiful old stone forts, beehive huts, churches, etc. are scattering along the route, along with beautiful views of the Blasket Islands, cliffs, the ocean, hidden beaches, etc, makes for... More

We spent a day early in Sept driving this spectacular coast of the Dingle Peninsula. The crashing waves and hillsides of sheep and heather were breathtaking. We visited a somewhat informal famine remains homestead packed with information and reached the most westerly point in Europe - any further and you would be in St John's Newfoundland. We visited a Romanesque... More

We loved the Dingle pub music scene and the rugged ocean drive. We tried to eat a seafood chowder each evening.

Not as famous as the Ring of Kerry but just as delightful AND the town of Dingle is a must see and must stop! Far fewer motorcoaches makes for a far more memorable tour.

Loved this place! Actually, we liked it better than anywhere we had been in Ireland. The landscape is dramatic and is right there (unlike the Ring of Kerry which seems removed from the visitor). We found several beaches to walk to or drive down to....a lot like Hawaii. Roads are good here, less traffic....and scenery is wow-ing.

Definitely another place to visit to add to your wish list. Simply glorious on a sunny warm late September day and we felt truly blessed. Imagine.... nothing but the Atlantic Ocean between you and America!!! Just stand and watch the waves roll in!! Stunning views from this rugged coast line liberally splashed with the purple of heather and yellow of... More

This was advice given to me as a teenager by a Dingle born heart throb I once met at a party and you know what? He was right! Theer is nothing to compare with the mystical beauty of the Dingle Pennisular and Ventry in particular - definitely one for the Bucket List!
