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

Dingle Peninsula is beautiful! Along the Wild Atlantic Way, it doesn't disappoint. Scenery is awesome - animals, land and sea. Don't miss the Connor Pass! The drive is a squeeze! Right along the cliffs and mountains! Go slowly! Bee Hive Huts are worth a look-see, too.

There is something other-worldly about the Dingle Peninsula. The vastness of the ocean and the 'green', just miles and miles of open space spotted with sheep and horses. Take the tour of the peninsula from the guidebooks, but be aware that stopping everywhere will take all day. The Famine cottages is a sobering reminder of what this country's people endured... More

Beautiful land and people. Nice rugby folk, still much Irish Gaelic language, amazing fish and chips. Many artisans reside there and local farming folk. Truly a gem. Side note, Star Wars filmed off its coastline.

We drove from Killarney across the Dingle Peninsula and did the Slea Head loop drive on May 28. We stopped at many beautiful scenic lookout spots. We especially enjoyed visiting the Gallarus Oratory and the Kilmalkedar Church. I would recommend going early to avoid the tour busses.

This beautiful peninsula was used as the scenery of Ryan's Daughter and is now being used in the recent and upcoming Star Wars movies. Apart from the spectacular scenery, you will have the opportunity to visit the Gallorus Oratory, which was built around the 7th or 8th century and which resembles an inverted boat; and the Kilmalkedar Church, which dates...

We decided to tour Dingle and Slea Heas rather than the Ring of Kerry after hearing how busy the RoK can be. We were not disappointed! The town is super cute and we had a great dinner in the Dingle Pub (there was some great live music the night we were there!) with ice cream afterward from Murphy's. We travelled... More

My family and I did a driving tour around the Dingle Peninsula and loved it. There are plenty of viewpoints to stop and park the car at to take pictures of the beautiful scenery. Plenty of cafes, restaurants, and historical sights to stop at along the way. Definitely take the time to drive around the whole peninsula. It was worth... More

Dingle peninsula is stunning, with views that change each corner that you turn. Meadows on cliffs and brilliant blues in the ocean. Dingle town is also so quaint with nice restaurant options as well as shopping. So glad we did this!
