Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry, Ireland

1 May 2006  We have been to Ireland 5 times and have spent 25 of 75 days on the Dingle Peninsula. When I hear of people who tour 10 Irish cities in 5 days, I cringe. When someone says they drove into Dingle one afternoon, I feel sorry for what they missed. You can no more see Dingle in an afternoon than you can Ireland in 2 or 3 days.

    Dingle Peninsula

    National Geographic Traveler describes the Dingle Peninsula as "the most beautiful place on earth". Take a couple days and see for yourself.
    It takes 5-6 hours to do the famous 90 mile long Ring of Kerry bus tour on the next peninsula south of Dingle. It is a great experience... however...armed with a good guidebook and map, it will take longer than that to do the 30 mile Slea Head Loop on Dingle's west coast.
    Start early, and ready yourself for beehive huts, breathtaking Atlantic views, rocky beaches, sandy beaches, sheer cliffs, The Blasket Islands, pottery shops, photo ops, short hikes, long walks, pub grub, historic points of interest, patchwork farms and the view of Dingle harbor from the uplands as you return for the evening. Rest up with some hot tea,, dine in a nice restaurant and head for one of the many pubs with live music to close the evening. Sleep well you have just experienced a near perfect day. And, did you know, you can get up in the morning and reverse the trip and see the same sights with totally different light and shadows and have your second most wonderful day ever!
