Every bit as beautiful as the Ring of Kerry or the Beara Peninsula, the Dingle Peninsula is a shorter drive than either of those, and has the benefit of a neat little town -- Dingle Town -- in the middle of your loop drive. The sea views, including of the Blasket Islands from Slea Head, are magnificent, and along the... More

The trip around Dingle peninsula starts at Tralee. We followed R560 to Conor Pass (we went to Brandon Bay, but frankly, could've passed on it). Conor Pass is breathtaking. Dingle is a big foodie town and as luck would have it, we found ourselves there during a food festival. We lost a lot of time trying to find a parking... More

Our family of seven were staying on the Dingle Peninsula for three days during a very rainy spell. On the fourth day, we got into our VW rental van and headed for County Galway via the ferry in County Clare. My husband didn't tell us that he was taking the "short cut" over Conor Pass; I'm sure he would have... More

Absolutely gorgeous drive! We had read that it was all one way, but that is not true for local traffic, apparently, so be careful. There were a few times when we got stuck behind slow tour buses, but it was actually kind of nice as it gave the driver a chance to look at the countryside. There are plenty of... More

We were staying in Limerick but we decided to do a long drive to the Dingle Peninsula. It was worth the drive because the view when we got there was breathtaking. Next time, we will overnight to maximize our visit.

We were fortunate to have beautiful weather when travelling around. It was a somewhat scary going around Slea Head but worth it for the breathtaking views. So much to take in!! Have to go back again SOON!!

This was one of my favourite drives on the planet. The landscape, the people, the food...it is just stunning in every way. Words don't do the experience justice...just go there and do it!

The Dingle Peninsula, the westernmost tip of Ireland, offers just the right mix of far-and-away beauty, isolated walks and ancient archaeological wonders. The classic loop drive is 50km but allow a day to take it all in. The town of Dingle is very picturesque and chock full of beautiful artisanal shops and friendly pubs where you can listen to a...

The Dingle can be an interesting drive in rainy weather on narrow, sometimes single lane roads but provides incredible ocean views. Afterwards, a hot cup of tea and biscuits in the village is much appreciated! Bus tour or self driven, it is worth the time.

If you ever go to Ireland, do not miss out on a visit to the Dingle Peninsula and accompanying Ring of Kerry. Of all the places we visited we found Dingle to be the most breathtaking scenery. Water royal blue. Beautiful beaches. You can even surf there. Many little vacation places to stay. A favorite of the Irish to vacation.... More
