Scheduling the limited time you have for your vacation is one of the most common questions we get.
If your trip to Ireland is between 7 to 10 days you just have to make some sacrifices… You won’t see it all in this time even if you just spend all day everyday driving.
We can advise you on the Dingle and County Kerry part of your trip.
Whilst Ireland is a small island it takes a while to get round, the roads are small and narrow, so make sure your rental cars isn’t too big, to just to go on distance is a mistake, look at your route and on the amount of things to see and do on the way.
For example Galway to Dingle can take up to 6 hours especially if you are going by the Cliffs of Moher. Kinsale to Dingle can take the same if not more if you are travelling via the Ring of Kerry. Kilkenny or Dublin to Dingle will take 4 hours.
So if you are coming to Dingle for just one day think carefully as by the time you arrive here if might be too late to go and see all the Dingle Peninsula has to offer.
The Dingle Peninsula deserves at a minimum a 2 night stay We strongly recommend a minimum of 3 nights if you schedule allows, the Slea Head Drive and its breath-taking views, spectacular cliff and mountain walks, ancient history especially Gallarus Oratory, Riasc Monastic settlement, Kilmacadur church. Boat trips to the jaw dropping Blasket islands will take all day if not 2 days.
You also want to see the North Shore of the Dingle Peninsula, over the Connor Pass takes you to Cloghane & Brandon which are a beautiful villages, under Brandon mountain then over along to Castlegregory and its long sandy beaches and down to the Maherees overlooking the islands you can then head over to Inch beach and back to Annascaul the home of Tom Crean the famous explorer
Nightlife & eating out
That’s not to mention the night life amazing restaurants and probably the best traditional music you will hear whilst in Ireland.
We haven’t mentioned the activities, Boat trips, Surfing, Kayaking at Sunset , Horse riding on the beaches or mountains, Distillery Tours, Archaeological Tours, Deep Sea-Diving, Sea Angling, Sea-weed baths……come to think of it you should spend your whole trip on the Dingle Peninsula
And I haven’t mention the retail therapy, the local craft and arts is spellbinding and there is more than enough ways to collect those gifts to bring home.
