All reviews stone building visitor center early christians dingle peninsula amazing structure dry stone short video stone work piece of history slea head drive thousand years worth a stop gift shop entrance fee small fee quick stop old church
This ancient building, like an upturned boat is the oldest church I have ever been to. Just one room, and so atmospheric.
Just seeing the way it was made and imagining how the early monks worshiped here makes the hairs on your neck stand up!
We were staying at Ballydavid and knew about this place. We went here and to an old stone fort a short ways from Gallarus. It is a marvel of old construction with the stones being the building material. I enjoyed the stories about the Gallarus...More
This place is a wonderful example of ancient stone construction. It's amazing to stand there in the presence of something that was constructed so long ago. You have beautiful views from that location as well as a simple walk to a little castle to take...More
This stop won’t take long and is interesting. The building is small. I would suggest watching the short into movie before you walk down to see it or you won’t have a clue as to what you are looking at.
Ring of Dingle Drive - Live Trip Report Day 4 (6 Replies)
The beautiful weather continues. Her is the link to yesterday. tripadvisor.ie/ShowTopic-g186591-i88-k770739… This was Ring of Dingle day. We had the car, we had the Rick Steve's guide and we had a map from the B&B. I was a bit worried about finding everything and it turns out I was right to worry. But we saw more than enough for the kids and happily enough for DH and me. After another tasty breakfast and sufficient coffee, we drove down to the SuperValue to get picnic food: bread,...More

We opted not to pay to tour the fort but did decide to pay to see the cottages In my view this was a mistake as cost is only a few €. Did you go into Stonehouse Restaurant for coffee ?
A Staycation - Dingle Peninsula (6 Replies)
Spent two nights on the Dingle Peninsula last month. Had a beautiful time there. We spent two nights in the newly reopened Strand Hotel in Inch with a beautiful double room overlooking inch beach. Day 1: Arrive on the Peninsula and go straight to Dingle via Connors Pass. Arriving into town our first stop was for a tour of the Dingle Brewing Company home to Tom Crean's Irish Larger. This is located in the old creamery. The tour is €7 and includes a free pint of Tom Crean's in the gift...More

Dingle Driving Time (6 Replies)
Hello, Is it possible to leave Shannon at 8am, self-drive to Dingle by late morning-midday, and still have time to explore Slea Head, Gallarus Oratory, Kilmalkedar, and maybe even Oceanworld or other town shops by the end of the same day? Gulp...I don't have a good feeling about this! Would you recommend taking the Shannon ferries to cut time? Thanks!

IrishJo, will you be arriving at Shannon from Canada? In that case I would imagine that you'd be pretty tired. Of course you can take the Shannon ferry and this might save some time and you should get to Dingle by midday at the latest. But on the whole I think you're not leaving yourself a lot of time to explore that beautiful part of the country. You can't see and enjoy all those wonderful places in just one afternoon. Well, maybe you can, but you won't really "see" them. Depending on the...More
