With its own atmosphere and identity
Visiting it Dingle Peninsula combines well with one of the Ring of Kerry . Due to its secluded location, it has managed to retain its own atmosphere and identity. Expect rugged mountainous landscapes on Dingle, complemented by spectacular coastlines and charming villages.
The eponymous fishing village of Dingle is the place to be to get a taste of the local Irish atmosphere described as unconventional and coastal. Feel like a local for a while and enjoy the typical Irish hospitality in one of the pubs. Of course while enjoying beer and fish & chips. Leave Dingle behind and dive into more than 6,000 years of history. Check out the Gallarus Oratory, an early Christian chapel that overlooks the blue waters Smerwick Harbor . Do you want an excellent view of the Blasket Islands to have? Then drive to Coumeenoole Beach and then continue your way to the highest mountain road of Ireland ; the Conor Pass .
You can walk for hours on the peninsula on various paths and enjoy the beautiful views. Or follow Slea Head Drive , a car route that winds close to the coast and forms part of the Wild Atlantic Way . On the way you will come across the Fahan Beehive Huts , a collection of clochán where monks lived in the Middle Ages, and stop for a picnic on one of the secluded sandy beaches.
