  • ... There are certainly not. But the views of the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains were great. The walks between 14 and 27 kilometres were well manageable. The accommodation and pubs generally good to very good. Camp (camp junction House) is a good start point or endpoint. There are actually only the many asphalt roads to complain about off the grand views, soothing greenery, the seclusion, the always friendly locals. The paths are generally easy to commit, but not in hiking boots that are required only for the crossing of Mount Brandon. Agricultural ways which have not suffered from several days of rain can be committed with lighter shoe material.

  • Many travel agencies offer the trail as a ready-made package, but there is enough information on the internet to find it yourself on your own size to plan (and much cheaper). We strolled Camp-> Annascoal-> Dingle-> Dunquin-> Feothanagh-> Cloghane-> Scraggane Pier-> Camp. An average of 22 km per day with a rest day in Dunquin, from which we benefited to the Blasket Islands to visit (we were lucky, because the ferry sails only in calm sea). The Dingle Way is well signposted (yellow male and yellow arrows). The landscape is very varied with green meadows bordered with the typical low walls, hills, cliffs and sandy beaches. Some stages are quite strong with a lot of rise and fall, but only the crossing of Mount Brandon was really heavy. Customize what pace and occasionally stop to catch your breath was here. In each stop is to find good sleeping accommodation, but given the success of the Dingle Way timely books is definitely needed. In every village/town also pubs and/or restaurants where you can eat well. For lovers of trail-hiking we can certainly recommend the Dingle Way. A good advice: let your luggage transport from one accommodation to another and walking with only a daypack-especially if you are not more of the youngest ones are. It not only makes the climbing and descending more comfortable, but also the strips where you can walk on the beach and prefer not to deep sinking in the sand;)

Where to stay in Dingle

Dingle Town represents a relaxed, artistic destination known for having plenty of affordable bed and breakfasts and other specialty accommodations. Many of these cluster right in the town's center, although the town also has a number of hotels, hostels, and other lodging for tourists. Here it's even normal to stumble upon a pub offering accommodation. A more luxurious (and often costly) option for travelers taking in the beauty of this peninsula is to stay in a scenic guesthouse overlooking Dingle Bay, which you can find in or right outside of town.
