We drove the Dingle Peninsula all day and I'd have to say it was great even in the pouring rain and sleet (on Conor's Pass). There are lots of narrow roads and even one that led us to the ocean (not realizing it right away). There's a public restroom in the town of Dingle in case anyone needs one!

this part of Kerry is a must to visit when in Kerry. If the weather is good you will really enjoy stopping of in Dingle. The music sessions in the pubs, a boat trip to see Fungi the wild dolphin who has made Dingle harbour his home, the many restaurants serving all kinds of menus. The drive around dingle to... More

If you don't have the time or desire to explore the entire Ring of Kerry which can take a full day of driving, the Dingle Peninsula offers a much more compact version of the same natural scenery along with dozens of its own historic sites that are easily comparable to those along the Ring of Kerry.

Trip around the Dingle Peninsula is well worth it. We did it in December, so it was overcast, but the views of the ocean were still amazing. You'll pull over a lot, so have your camera ready. While in Dingle, don't forget to stop at Murphy's for ice cream, even if it's cold outside. The brown bread ice cream alone... More

The Dingle Peninsula was a place we went to fill an open day, and did it ever. We were blessed with perfect weather, and enjoyed the scenery so much. We did this in a car and I will say the driver has to wait for overlooks, and viewpoints to really enjoy the beauty. There are many places to stop for... More

We took a day trip drive' only 30km or so around the Dingle Peninsular, starting and finishing in the township of Dingle. The scenery is breathtaking and as we did the trip in winter there was almost no traffic. Having an insight into the history of the area makes it so much more special. Well worth a drive if you...
