Description

So, you want to be wowed? Do you want to marvel at something? You’ve come to the right place. Ireland’s Dingle Peninsula is an icon for a reason, and we can’t wait to share it with you. As we depart Killarney Town, we assure you the weather does not matter – even as we head for the glorious Inch Beach. It’s the kind of place that’s perfect no matter what – glistening in the sunlight or waves crashing in argument with the angry clouds above. You’ll find the locals and other travellers agree, the beach being popular with surfers, anglers and swimmers all year round. We then journey along Slea Head Drive (or Slí Cheann Sléibhe if you want to practice the local tongue), one of Ireland’s most scenic routes. Make sure you’re not napping as we coast along this circular route. Trust us, you’ll kick yourself later if you miss these views. There’s so much to love along the way, and we’ll keep our options open as we drive. Perhaps you’ll stop in at Tóchar Maothaithe – Ireland's famous beehive huts. Or maybe the Famine Cottages, bleak histories with an incredible view. Our drive takes us to Slea Head (or Dunmore Headland) where beautiful views await. You’ll pop out for a little walk, or perhaps down to the beach below. The adventure continues and we’ll look for more incredible places to stop along the way as we make our way to Gallarus Oratory. Ancient and striking, this is one of the only remaining churches of its type to survive intact today and it’s your turn to explore it. Our final stop of the day is the lovely town of Dingle. You have a couple of hours here to explore as you wish. Maybe you’ll sample some of the local cuisine? Or have yourself an afternoon treat at the distillery? Or simply wander and take in those views. The choice is yours. It’s time to head back to Killarney, just a short drive to end a pretty fabulous day.
