Drove to the tip of the peninsula and it was well worth the drive. I was awestruck by the scenery. The roads were single lane part of the way so be careful but the drive is so worth it

Great place for ancient sites. Ring forts, Celtic stones and coastal scenery. Bee hive stone houses, old ruins of castles & churches. Coastal drive better than ring of Kerry.

We have seen a lot of coastlines, but this is definitely the one with the largest waves we have ever seen before. They come crashing into the coastline such that it is a white frothy mass. We did stop at one point so we could go down to the beach. Signs are posted not to swim. Hard to imagine anyone... More

We did not allow enough time to explore Dingle, so we didn't go beyond Dingle town. The views of the coastline and the mountains were spectacular. Take the winding road through The O'Connor Pass. You may be in the clouds or you may see incredible views. Either way, it's breathtaking. Dingle is a colorful town full of pubs and nice... More

My wife and I traveled around various places in Ireland. By far our favorite scenic drive was around Dingle Peninsula via Slea Head drive! We both agreed that if we come back to Ireland again in the future that we both want to come back to Dingle Peninsula!This would be the first place I recommend people visit after landing in... More

The Dingle Peninsula has the most astounding views! We drove the peninsula in one day stopping in Dingle for lunch. I would highly recommend using a guidebook if you are not taking a bus tour. We used the Rick Steves guide book. Otherwise, you will just drive by the interesting and important points of interest, because the signs are small,... More

With a heavy mist and often light rain, we were still in awe of the scenery (and the green!) as we drove from Dingle town out to Slea Head. The road was quite narrow (one lane in many instances) but the route is well worth the little bit of driving anxiety we experienced.

Wow! We took our family to Ireland for two weeks and spent a week on the Dingle peninsula. We rented a lovey home just outside of town overlooking "message in a bottle beach". The home was surrounded by sheep pastures and our family took long hikes up the emerald hills. This is a getaway that will leave you inspired to... More
