Self-Guided Dingle Peninsula Cycle

The Dingle Peninsula is one of the most spectacular regions on Ireland’s West Coast. This mountainous finger of land, stretches 48 kms (30 miles) into the Wild Atlantic Ocean, and discovering its true beauty and history, feeling its heart and soul, can take weeks or even years. It has supported various tribes and populations for at least 6,000 years. Moreover it is steeped in history, mythology and traditional Irish culture. There is no other landscape in Western Europe with the same density and variety of archaeological monuments as the Dingle Peninsula boasts.
There is so much to discover and conquer within ‘Dingle’ that it really has to be seen in all of its glory to be believed. Because of its remote location – and lack of specialised agriculture – it is steeped in ancient Irish history and spectacularly shaped by the ravages of the Atlantic Ocean. As you hike the Dingle Way (also known as the Kerry Camino) you will leave the county town of Tralee & follow to the southern shores to reach Dingle Bay, the magnificent Inch Beach and on to Dingle town. Your return journey back to Tralee, takes you to the northern shores with the impressive Brandon range of mountains beckoning you as you discover more of the remarkable history that this land is so famous for. We invite you to lose yourself in this magnificent landscape and make memories that will last a lifetime.
