Dingle's Slea Head Drive

No.1: Drive/Cycle Dingle's Slea Head Drive

A
n absolute must! Nobody should leave the Dingle Peninsula without embarking on this 30 km journey(approximately). Every scene paints a picture! You will pass through picturesque villages such as Ventry, Dunquin, Ballyferriter, and Ballydavid. You will witness some truly breathtaking scenery as you look out upon the Blasket Islands and the
"Sleeping Giant"
. Along your way you shall also pass through the most westerly point in Europe. You will not have witnessed the wonder of the Dingle Peninsula until you have toured the Slea Head Drive!

The magnificent Ventry Beach

No.2: Enjoy a stroll along Ventry Beach

V
entry Beach is probably the most beautiful of the beaches that the Dingle Peninsula boasts. Located just a short journey from our house, in the quaint village of Ventry, this magnificent beach is an ideal place to get away from it all and to appreciate the beauty that the Dingle Peninsula possesses.

Visit Fungi the Dingle Dolphin

No.3: Visit Fungi the Dingle Dolphin

F
ungie, the Dingle Dolphin, is unquestionably Dingle's most famous resident. Dingle Harbour lighthouse keeper, Paddy Ferriter, first spotted the lone wild dolphin escorting the town's fishing fleet to and from port in 1984. Since that day Fungie has never left us and is now a permanent resident of the entrance channel of Dingle Bay. He is the self-appointed
"pilot"
of the fleet. Local fishermen operate boat trips daily from the main pier or alternatively you can walk out along the coast to the mouth of Dingle Bay (which our house overlooks) where he is frequently spotted playing around.

View from top of Connor Pass

No.4: Drive/Cycle to the top of Connor Pass

T
he Connor Pass is another area of immense natural beauty on the Dingle Peninsula. Lakes, waterfalls, rivers and valleys that have been etched out by enormous glaciers during the ice age typify the area. The panoramic views of this glaciated valley make the unusual assent worthwhile. However, BEWARE, the drive is not for the faint hearted!

Blasket Islands

No.5: Visit the Blasket Islands

T
hree miles west of the tip of the Dingle Peninsula, the Blasket Islands rise spectacularly from the Atlantic Ocean. They are probably the most famous of all the islands that are dotted around the coast of Ireland. Sadly, due to persistent emigration, the last of the island's inhabitants left in 1953, however, with its historic, cultural and literary heritage aswell as its magnificant location, it remains a splendid place to visit on a day trip.

Sunset over Dingle Town

No.6: Watch the sunset over Dingle Town

W
hether it is just a romantic setting or magnificant pictures you want, it is hard to match an evening sunset.
