The Dingle Way

Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry

Situated on the Dingle Peninsula in the southwest of Ireland, this is a diverse and beautiful walking trail, full of surprises for those who wander its paths. Measuring a total of 178km, this route can be done in parts or as part of a week long holiday.

Traversing pristine sandy beaches bordering on crystal seas, fuchsia and gorse lined green roads leading through pastoral countryside, heather and bracken covered hills, and mountain passes up to 700 meters, Dingle is walking paradise on earth. Leading to Europe’s most westerly point the area is dotted with a series of early Christian monuments, Iron Age fortifications, and beehive huts.

At the western end stands one of Ireland’s finest mountains, Mt. Brandon, Ireland’s 8th highest-peak with its cloud-capped peak beckoning you to the top.

To fully appreciate the depth & extent of Dingle's beauty you will need to make a little effort. Don't just make this a day trip- stay a few days and only then will you begin to understand why Dingle on the edge of Europe has had a timeless appeal for travellers for millenia.
