The Dingle Way
National Geographic Traveller describes south west Ireland’s Dingle Peninsula as “the most beautiful place on earth”. The Dingle Way’s 180km takes walkers through arguably the most impressive and richest archaeological heritage of all the Emerald Isle’s national trails.
The official start of the Way is in Tralee, county town of County Kerry and gateway to the Dingle Peninsula. Soon you’ll be striding out across wild moorland cloaked in heather and abundant in wild flowers. Hike past small villages and along coastal routes with truly outstanding golden beaches. Highlights include a stay in the charming town of Dingle and the village of Dunquin, which overlooks the Blasket Islands. See ruined castles and forts, clochans or ‘beehive huts’ which date back to 6000BC and a host of ancient standing stones.
A choice of itineraries means you can complete the full trail, a week-long tour, or a shorter 5-night option which takes in the highlights of the Dingle Way. With friendly hosts waiting to greet you at hand-picked accommodation and the ease of luggage transfers each day, this is a classic Irish trail.
