Once you have spent time on the Slea Head drive, you will discover that the Dingle Peninsula Tour has it all. Not only does it enjoy some of the most spectacular mountain and coastal scenery in Ireland (if not the world), but centuries of isolation have left it with a rich heritage of remarkably well preserved archaeological and ecclesiastical sites. It’s almost an open-air museum.
Rich in Gaelic culture, language, literature, art and sport, the area centres on the colourful town of Dingle (Daingean Uí Cúis – meaning Fort of Ó Cúis), which has become a byword for traditional music, great pubs, and fine restaurants.
The peninsula provided settings for a number of famous films, most notably Star Wars in 2016, Ryan’s Daughter in 1969, Far & Away in 1991 and John Millington Synge’s Playboy of the Western World way back in 1961.
On a private guided tour with Kerry Guided Tours, you will find an Ireland that you thought existed only in story and film.
Highlights of the Tour
- The village of Blennerville, site of the only working windmill in Ireland, where many emigrants sailed for America and beyond
- The pretty village of Annascaul, home to the Antarctic hero Tom Crean
- The Connor Pass, a sometimes hair-raising narrow pass from Camp to Dingle, with spectacular views
- Dingle Town: Nestled in a sheltered harbour with mountains at its back, the town teems with small cafés and restaurants selling fresh fish and lamb from the local area. It is also home to a distillery and a brewery.
- Ventry harbour and beach
- Iron Age stone forts and Beehive huts
- Slea Head with its spectacular views of the Blasket and Skellig Islands on a clear day
- Gallarus Oratory, thought to date from the 10th or 11th century and the only one if its kind surviving intact on the Irish mainland
- Riasc Monastic Settlement on the Dingle Peninsula, home to the impressive ruins of a 6th-century monastery and important carved stone. The site is off the beaten track, but you are rewarded for your efforts with an intriguing site that you can explore in peace.
- Kilmalkedar, centre of Christian monasticism in the 7th century and site of an ogham stone, alphabet stone, sundial, and stone cross
