Dingle Peninsula Loop is well worth it. Only 30 miles (vs. Ring of Kerry Loop which is 120 miles!) gives you more intimate views of true Ireland without all the tour buses that always are on Ring of Kerry. Car is a must but active cyclists obviously can do it. Do it on your own pace. Wonderful!

Words cannot adequately describe the natural beauty of this dramatic coastline. One vista after another come into view as you navigate the stress inducing turns, missing oncoming traffic by inches. But it is worth the white knuckle drive, the sheep on the rolling hillside haven't any idea where they live.

We did the loop on a beautiful day and were well rewarded with quaint seaside towns and gorgeous vistas. The driving is a bit easier than the ring of Kerry but not for the faint of heart. Make sure you do both the Ring and the Dingle if you can.

Tuesday 6th September dawned but you wouldn’t necessarily have known where we were as the whole of Dingle peninsula was swathed in a thick fog that refused to budge all day. Undeterred, we set out to find ten things to do on a rainy day in and around Dingle. Our top ten goes as follows: 1. Tourist office - mainly... More

We drove both the Dingle and Kerry peninsula and preferred Dingle. More dramatic coastline, and slightly less tourists(although probably not in future!). Dingle itself is a quaint town to sit and have lunch or just a drink and an ice cream. A beach and historical sites nearby made this a must see we were delighted with

We drove much of the peninsula to get to Dingle town and then head north to catch the ferry. The seascapes are amazing and nearly impossible to describe. The rocky shores and green hills are simply awe inspiring. The great villages could keep you going for a week if you took the time.

Most people who travel to Ireland always visit the Ring of Kerry mainly because most people don't even know about Slea Head road which is unbelievably gorgeous drive located in Dingle Peninsula. The town Dingle in itself is worth the visit. I thought it would be a small town but it's not, it's a thriving town on the peninsula with... More

We drove the Ring of Kerry and thought it was gorgeous; the following day we drove the Dingle Peninsula and was even more impressed! If you only have time for one, choose Dingle. The town is adorable too with lots of dining and pub options.

Spend a day driving around this beautiful peninsula. There are plenty of things to see, ancient stone houses, quaint little pubs, long stretches of beach, green rolling hills, black faced sheep and Dingle itself. Dingle is a good place for lunch, plenty of cafes, pubs and shops. This has to be one of the world's best drives.
