The Dingle Peninsula stretches 48 km into the Atlantic Ocean on Ireland’s south-west coast with The Blasket Islands lying further west of the peninsula. Peace and tranquillity are synonymous, with life moving at an unhurried pace in the Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) area, and a strong tradition of music, poetry and storytelling. Famed for its rugged beauty and indigenous cultural heritage, the area has something to offer every visitor. Visit great beaches offering the excitement of wind surfing, or travel over the Conor Pass, the highest mountain pass in Ireland offering magnificent views. Visit the pretty fishing port of Dingle and their most famous resident “Fungi”, a friendly bottlenose dolphin that has lived in the harbour since 1984. One of Ireland’s highest mountains Mount Brandon, and Slea Head located at the tip of the Peninsula offer dramatic scenery.
