The Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry

4.9
#3 of 7 in Scenic Drive in Province of Munster
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. Use our Castlegregory road trip planning site to add The Dingle Peninsula and other attractions to your Castlegregory vacation plans.
