The Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry

(4.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Listen to the drums and fiddles echo off the cliffs on The 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. Put The Dingle Peninsula into our Lispole family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
