Last May my husband and I visited Dublin, Killarney and Galway using public transportation and local services. We also did a seven day walk on the Kerry Way organized by Hillwalk Tours. In May 2018 we are returning to Ireland to walk the Dingle Way (7 days) and to spend time exploring the Burren. We are flying in and out of Shannon and using public transportation to get to and from the beginning and end of our walk on the Dingle Way. Following the walk we are renting a car and spending...More

Thank you, Bean! The Flying Boat Museum looks like fun and Listowel looks lovely. Any thoughts from anyone on which of the two routes I mentioned would be better for the trip to New Quay? Or is there another route we should think about? Thanks!

The Dingle Way by foot (15 Replies)
Hello, I am planning to walk the Dingle Way, or at least a large portion of it, in August 2017. I have read some reviews that state I should start in Camp rather than Tralee as that portion has less fantastic views. Since I plan to walk the trail and am traveling alone, I am hoping you can help me answer the following questions: 1. Is it relatively safe to travel The Dingle Way alone? Are the trails well traveled, marked, and maintained? Is it very easy to get lost? 2. Any...More

1, yes, fairly,map and compass. 2,http://www.dingleway.com/services/tour-operators.php 3,depends which trail you might have to come back and see Ireland the Dingle peninsular is only a very tiny part of the island. Disregard all the above as everyone will tell you I Know Nothing about Dingle.
