Dingle Peninsula Walk - Hike Tour From Tralee
Reviewed 18 December 2017

The Dingle Loop was worth a drive but some of the attractions along the route are in private land owners' hand. The Ring fort was nothing but just mounts of soil left in circles, it was not identical to photographs taken. The beehive huts, can give a pass if you are not interested (fee Euro 3). The Stone cafe was closed when the drive was made in end November.

I travelled as a part of a tour group in Sept 2016 - incredible views along this drive and well worth it. Only wish the Irish government, however, would make it a one way road! Lots of places to pull over and take photos.

Make sure you stop in the town of Dingle too.

We enjoyed driving along Slea Head Drive and other roads on the peninsula and visiting various towns including Dingle. Unfortunately for us, it was a misty day so the views would have been more spectacular on a sunny day. During our drive we visited some beehive huts, a famine exhibit, a pottery gallery and other sights. We also drank in the wonderful views.

We would rate the Dingle peninsula as the second best of the southwestern Ireland peninsulas (the Ring of Beara was our favourite and the Ring of Kerry, although also beautiful, particularly along the less traveled Skellig Ring, would be #3). However, we still believe that the peninsula is outstanding and well worth a visit

Driving from The Shores B&B, over Conor Pass to Dingle is a beautiful drive. The scenery is beautiful on the way to Dingle and around the Dingle Peninsula. Dingle is a quaint fishing town which I highly recommend to visit.

Heard from others that the Dingle Peninsula offers same views as Ring of Kerry but with less people and boy were they right. We started the drive in Dingle and maybe passed 2 cars the entire ring, It's much shorter than the Kerry Ring but the ocean views and the lovely towns and friendly people made is one of the highlights of our trip. We took the Rick Steve's book along and I read about scenic points along the way -- we learned a lot about Irish history, the potato famine, stone walls, stone houses....it was incredible!
