From awe-inspiring coastal scenery and ancient archaeology to a rich traditional music culture and excellent local cuisine, Dingle in West Kerry has something for everyone. Internationally acclaimed as a place of heavenly beauty, incredible history, and inspiring culture, Dingle is a unique place.
You can’t leave Dingle without touring Slea Head, the most westerly point in Europe and home to some of the most spectacular coastal views you will ever see. The tour starts and ends in Dingle town, bringing you 46km of stunning beaches, historical attractions, and unforgettable scenery. Among the gems of the Dingle peninsula is Gallarus Oratory, a tiny early Christian church that resembles an upturned boat with its sloping side walls. Built without mortar, the oratory has endured the harsh Atlantic weather for at least a millennium.
Off the Dingle coast, you will see the Blasket Islands, a 20-minute ferry ride away. Abandoned in 1953, the island was home to an exclusively Irish-speaking population who cultivated a unique culture that is celebrated in local literature. Back in Dingle town, you can enjoy the richly authentic traditional music, fine food, and colourful streets.
