Remains of the abandoned house on shore in Dingle peninsula in South Ireland

On Ireland’s southwestern coast, the Dingle Peninsula attracts walkers with rugged coastline, quiet beaches and interesting coves.

Further inland, trails range from easy sloping hills to scrambles up cliffs and along ridges.

Circling the peninsula is the Dingle Way, a popular 179 km long-distance walking trail. Starting at the base of the Slieve Mish Mountains, the route takes seven to nine days to complete. Walkers can enjoy ocean views from Brandon Bay, vistas of the mountain range at Lispole and explore large sections of cliff-walking.
