Dingle way-Self Guided-8 Days

8 days
About this activity
Day 1: Dublin to Tralee

Arrive in Tralee, the administrative capital of County Kerry. This is the home to the famous Rose of Tralee festival. Upon arrival in your guesthouse, your hostess will give you your full detailed information pack, and she will suggest some of the many local restaurants or pubs and even traditional Irish music.

Day 2: Tralee to Camp

Walk along back country roads to join the Dingle Way, and then you follow the once old road under the Slieve Mish Mountains to Dingle. Passing a fascinating 8th century church, you then continue to the village of Camp. Fantastic views over the Atlantic Ocean.

Day 3 : Camp to Annascaul

Today, you cross the spine of the Dingle Peninsula to traverse above the wildlife sanctuary of lnch beach and then on green road and hilltop to the picturesque village of Annascaul, where you overnight.

Day 4: Annascaul to Dingle

Continue along a medieval road to the fishing village of Dingle, which is steeped in Irish culture and music, and where the locals still speak in the native (Gaelic) tongue. Dingle is a wonderful little harbour town and boasts attractions such as the Marine Centre, boat trip to see 'Fungi', Dingle's resident dolphin, 52 pubs and attractive craft shops and famous restaurants.

Day 5: Dingle to Slea Head

Today's walking is spectacular, taking you via Ventry Beach and along the slopes of Mount Eagle to Slea Head. This stretch is famous for its concentration of archaeological sites such as the "beehive" huts. You will get to see the wonderfully remote Blasket Islands and experience life in one of Ireland's Gaeltacht regions. Overnight in Dunquin.

Day 6: Slea head to Feothanagh 

The road leading out of Dunquin provides a brisk uphill walk. Heading due north, the Dingle Way soon turns into a gravel path and then rounds the shoulder of An Ghráig at 120m above sea-level. After heading across grasslands and passing the small picturesque Clogher Beach, the Dingle Way skirts some cliffs where the full force of the Atlantic can be felt as waves come crashing in below.

Day 7: Feothanagh to Cloghane

Today, you will walk across an old military road to the northern side of the peninsula - finishing in the village of Cloghane. This is a remote but spectacular walk - full of history and inaccessible except by foot.

Day 8: Cloghane to Castlegregory 

Today is a walk along the beaches, made interesting by the remains of a 15- century church and graveyard at Stradbally. Farther along are the Lough Gill wildlife sanctuary and more beaches, walking around a peninsula before coming to Castlegregory.
