Lovely day driving from Cahersiveen to Dingle. I'd still stay at Cahersiveen but thoroughly enjoyed the town of Dingle. And Inch, even on a rainy day, was definitely worth the stop. Great strand there.

Driving is a wee bit hairy, but so worth it. The views,the little towns, the beaches, the historical elements are worth the stress of the roadways. I would strongly recommend you head to Connors pass first and not end with this very exhilarating little drive. It is a crazy drive,but is not a very long part of the trip. This... More

We drive from Killarney to Dingle. The drive was well worth it! The Dingle Peninsula is absolutely beautiful. We went counterclockwise and didn't run into any tour buses. The view is amazing everywhere we stopped even on a cloudy day. Also be sure to stop in Dingle for some shopping and eating. We saved this for after our drive around... More

The Dingle Peninsula, and the Slea Head Drive in particular, are absolutely beautiful. The day I arrived, it was pouring rain, but that didn't make the drive any less beautiful. The strong waves crashing against the rocky coast and the whipping winds only added to the beauty of the Irish coast. Highly recommended!

After reading Rick Steve's guidebook, I had high expectations for Dingle. I found it to be a smaller version of Killarney. The drive on the pennisula was ok, but not as great as its billing in the guidebooks.

Great Beaches and so many places for photo ops. Definitely drive Conner's Pass - but ONLY if weather is good. Extremely dangerous if low clouds block visibility.

We got to Dingle near the end of our three week trip to Ireland. It was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. We had some iffy (Irish) weather, but got outside and thoroughly enjoyed our three days on the Dingle Peninsula. We loved the great views on the two short hikes we took (Clocher Beach and behind the... More

This was my 2nd trip to Dingle and it was as great as I remembered it. Picturesque with tons of fun places to eat, drink and shop.

Best if done clockwise and timed when to miss the bus tours. The views and the drive is something we will always remember.
