The Dingle Peninsula or Corca Dhuibhne stretches 30 miles - 48 kilometres, into the Atlantic Ocean from Ireland's south-west coast
The peninsula is dominated by the range of mountains that form its spine, running from the Slieve Mish range to Mount Brandon, Ireland's second highest peak. The coastline consists of steep sea-cliffs, broken by sandy beaches, with two large sand spits at Inch in the south and the Maharees to the north. The Blasket Islands lie to the west of the peninsula
The peninsula has something to offer to everyone - sandy beaches safe for swimming, walking routes for all abilities, a thriving Irish language community, a rich musical tradition, fine dining, sea angling, arts, local crafts, film, food and art festivals, talented craftspersons and some of the best surf in Ireland
Dingle Peninsula Tourism, a marketing co-operative owned and managed by its members, have produced this website to provide you with the information you need to plan and enjoy your visit
