Ireland - Dingle Way

Ireland - Dingle Way

Degree of difficulty - Moderate/Strenuous

The Dingle peninsula is a narrow mountainous finger of land reaching to Europe's most westerly point. At the western end stands one of Ireland's finest mountains, Mount Brandon. This forms the focus for several days' walking as you follow old roads and effusive fuchsia lined lanes around the peninsula before climbing over the shoulder of this noble peak.

3 Night Tour

Day 2 – Anascaul to Dingle Follow quiet lanes and tracks to Lispole via Minard Bay. After Lispole a little more attention to route finding is required as you link faint paths and Fields along the base of the mountains.
Approximately 21 km, 430 m ascent
Accommodation - B&B in Dingle Town

Day 3 – Dingle to Slea Head / Dunquin We will organize a morning transfer to Ventry beach from where you follow an old road around the Base of Mount Eagle with some glorious views out over Dingle Bay.
