Check out our blog post on the top 6 activities to carry out during your trip to the Dingle Peninsula.
Ranging from boat trips to distillery trips, Dingle has a lot to offer so be sure to check out our list and
book any of the following activities well in advance to avoid disappointment, especially during peak
First on the list is the iconic Great Blasket Islands. You can catch a trip, just a ten-minute walk from
Greenmount House down at the Dingle marina. The island has become world famous over the last
number of years and I would highly recommend a day trip (six-hour round trip). It is an amazing escape
from the real world and one not to be missed.
The world famous Slea Head Drive should be on everyone’s itinerary when they embark on a trip to the
Dingle Peninsula. It is a 2-hour loop but due to the amazing scenery and local stops a trip can last
anywhere from a few hours to a whole day. If you don’t have a car, check out Dingle Shuttle bus above
for your solution or if you want to get on the saddle Dingle Electric bikes is a fantastic way to experience
the best the Peninsula has to offer.
Where to Stop
One of the biggest attractions that has been added to the Dingle Peninsula over the last decade has to be
the award-winning Dingle distillery. The brand name has given the area further world recognition and the
accolade of the best gin in the world, 2019. Although the distillery is world famous for its gin, they also
produce whiskey and vodka on site.
Anyone who knows anything about Irish pubs has heard the name Dick Mack's. The pub is famous for its
whiskey collection, accolades, snugs, beer garden and now their very own brewery. No trip to Dingle is
now complete without a trip to Dick Mack's for a whiskey and one of their very own craft beers with a
variety of flavours to choose from as seen above.
The most popular activity in Dingle over the last number of years has to be the Sea Safari on offer around
the Great Blasket Island’s. There are two companies running the following activity showcasing the best
the Dingle Peninsula has to offer. This three-hour activity takes in the Great Blasket Islands, seals, pods
of dolphins and even the possibility of seeing humpback whales especially during the summer months.
