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...

We had a rental car and drove the Killarney National Park. The only problem with driving is that the driver has to concentrate on navigating the small roads and can't enjoy the beauty of the area. We did a tour of the Dingle Peninsula with Paddywagon Tours out of Killarney and it was worth the 20 Euros because my husband... More

The drive along the The Dingle Peninsula are some of the most scenic in all of Ireland! We drove from Kenmare to Dingle,just when we thought it couldn't be more beautiful we would come around a bend in the road and the view was even prettier than the last! I have some of my photos here https://www.etsy.com/shop/BonnieRPhotography and more here...... More

A good days drive with some pretty dramatic cliffs and seas. Drop in for an Irish designed and made handbag at Conor Holdens as you come out of Dingle, Great hospitality and there are a fantastic pair of sea otters on the beach there. The rest of the coastline is dramatic and has many photo opportunities with high waves and... More

We visited Ireland on a 8 day whirlwind visit my husband and I. Dingle Peninsula was just beautiful. The rolling green hills, the water. We were surprised with wonderful weather (70's). The people were wonderfully nice and everywhere we stopped there was someone willing to tell us a story about this ruin or that building or this lake. Wish I... More

I enjoyed traveling to the peninsula. There are several island offshore. The homes are small. You can image the isolation of living there a century ago.
