Full description
The Dingle peninsula in south-west Ireland stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean, and attracts visitors for its mountainous and coastal scenery as well as its antiquities. You’ll visit the major attractions of this spectacular region on a 6.5-hour tour from Killarney. From Slea Head you can see the Blasket Islands, which are the last outposts of Europe and are known as the next parish to America. They are famous for the literary and linguistic heritage of the former inhabitants. These remote islands have been uninhabited since the 1950s. The western end of the peninsula is a Gaeltacht area that has produced a number of nationally notable authors and poets, including O’Siochfhradha and Peig Sayers among others. Being an Irish-speaking district traditional customs are still very much alive. A band of sandstone forms the Slieve Mish mountain range at the neck of the peninsula in the east, and the unnamed central mountain range further to the west. Ireland’s highest mountain other than Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, Mount Brandon, reaches 951 meters and forms part of a high ridge that boasts stunning views over the peninsula and northern county Kerry. The Dingle peninsula is named after the town of Dingle, derived from the Corco Dhuibhne who occupied the peninsula in the Middle Ages and who also held a number of territories in the south and east of county Kerry. Dingle was Kerry’s chief port in the old Spanish trading days and in the reign of Queen Elizabeth was important enough to be a walled town. The peninsula is the location of numerous prehistoric and early medieval remains. The Gallarus Oratory, for example, is located in the very west of the peninsula near the village of Baile an Fheirtearaigh in Ard na Caithe.

We lucked out with having beautiful sunshine which made the spectacular scenery look even more amazing. Our tour guide/drive Eric was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the area.

We had a great time in dingle and around the peninsula with a very friendly driver who had lots of good knowledge and stories about the area around Dingle. The mini bus had 14 passengers which was just the right amount so we could have a good sightseeing experience and get back to the bus to move on to the next place. The tour takes you through the main areas and attractions then stops off in Dingle for lunch before the tour continues to the next few attractions and brings you back to Killarney Town.
