Dingle and Ring of Kerry Self-Drive Tour Itinerary

Day 1:Dingle and Slea Head

Dingle is your destination today, as you explore this dramatic and beautiful peninsula that is littered with archaeological and historical wonders.

Your first stop off is at Inch beach, famous for being the place where an inch is actually three miles long and where we take a short stroll along its golden sands and watch long rolling waves that come crashing ashore. Once aboard you head due west to the edge of Europe, also known as Slea Head. Feast your eyes on breathtaking scenery of wild rugged coastline, golden beaches and the magnificent Blasket Islands. Continue your journey around this rich and vibrant peninsulas exploring its vast Gaelic culture and learning a cupla focal (some words) in Irish along the way.

You have the opportunity to visit Dingle town, a picturesque fishing town that was famed for Fungi the dolphin who had been a local for almost 30 years, before making your return journey to Killarney and enjoy an evening of fantastic food and entertainment. 

Day 2:The Ring of Kerry and Valentia Island

Today’s adventure takes you off the beaten track to unlock the real beauty of the world famous Ring of Kerry. Considered one of the most beautiful destinations to explore in Ireland, the Ring of Kerry offers dramatic landscapes of wild rugged coastline, golden beaches, glistening lakes, picturesque villages and spectacular mountain ranges.

Even better, take an incredible tour of the spectacular Valentia Island where you can delve into its incredible history and heritage, explore its magical setting on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and if you are lucky get a glimpse (weather permitting) of the dramatic Skellig Islands (Star Wars famed).

After a well-earned bite to eat, slowly make your way back to Killarney stopping off at many spectacular viewing points to discover their historical importance and the opportunity to take that picture that will ensure an everlasting memory of paradise.
