Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry

#3 of 10 in Scenic Drive in Province of Munster
Listen to the drums and fiddles echo off the cliffs on Dingle Peninsula, a landscape dominated by the Slieve Mish mountain range and rugged coastlines and known for its rich Irish music tradition. Tall, jagged cliffs rise out of the waters, while sandy beaches offer some of the best surfing in Ireland, with certain areas also safe for swimming. Hiking trails range from challenging to easy and cut across the dynamic peninsula through mountains and over plateaus. The communities that live on the peninsula offer you fine dining, art galleries, and plenty of pubs with live traditional Irish music. Consider staying more than one day on the peninsula to experience all its natural and cultural highlights.

  • So many sights as you travel down the road. Finally you reach the town of Dingle and it's pretty harbor filled with fishing boats. The town itself is full of lively pubs and shops of every description...  more »
  • Here you will find everything your heart desires. Whether quaint pubs with live music, chic boutiques or traditional wool shops, there's really everything here! The houses are colorful and pretty to look at. Guests can relax at the harbour. On weekends it is a bit fuller and louder, but still very sympathetic. For the children there is a very modern and clean playground!
