    Dingle - where the bears say good night

    Don't miss this lovely building, when driving the "Atlantic Drive". After having left Dingle-town to the west-end of the peninsula you will see this building with its fancy facade on the right after 3-4 km. It used to be a B&B and I saw it first 15 years ago. These pics were taken at that time and last time I had been there, 5 years ago, plenty of the colors had faded a bit, but it still looked great. Just take a look at the many great details, there is also a big car-parking next to it with a great view of the Blasket islands !!

    Cottages & Green Fields, Dingle Peninsula

    Dingle Peninsula is by far the best of all the Peninsulas of the Southwest Coast. It has a diversity and beauty that surpasses all the rest. It is hard to explain until you experience it yourself. It is full of magnificent scenery, ancient ruins, quaint cottages, green fields and stone fences, Gaelic speaking locals, great Pubs, and some of the best Traditional Music you will hear in all of Ireland.

    Minard Castle, Doonmanagh, Dingle Peninsula

    Minard Castle. Doonmanagh, Dingle Pen.

    What a spot...a real "off the beaten path", great old castle, no fees, just enjoy. If you go to Inch Beach and you are on your way to Dingle Town, stop here for a moment. It's a great introduction to the mystery and beauty of the Dingle Peninsula. You can see the Ring of Kerry across the bay.

    Near by Anascaul is a great quaint village. Lovely. Wonderful hiking backbacking area.

    Brandon Mountain area, Dingle Peninsula

    This is out of the way....but worth the extra miles, Brandon Mountain.... a remote area, more ocean views, more quaint countryside, more Irish cottages. ......more of the wonderful unique Dingle Peninsula.

    The wonderful scupture dedicated to St. Brendon for his voyage to America in a curraugh is located here.

    Of the five peninsulas in...

    Of the five peninsulas in Western Cork and Kerry counties, Dingle peninsula is the one I enjoyed the most. In good weather it's a cycler's paradise, with plenty of archeological sites and wonderful coastal landscapes.

    See the travelogue for some of my favourite pictures!

    Located at the tip of the Dingle peninsula is Dunmore Head, Ireland's westernmost point. A short walk from main the road this rock covered in sheep and sheep's droppings juts out into the sea. Canada straight ahead!

    If you have a rented car with unlimited mileage and a day to waste don't miss the Ring of Kerry.

    We arrived in Dingle the night before and stayed at a beautiful Hostel on the outskirts, I dont remember the name but there are only a couple and this one looks like a big log cabin. We were lucky that no one else was there so we got the entire top floor to ourselves.

    While in Dingle make sure to take a walk on the docks, talk to as many people as possible.

    We then took off around the ring of Kerry. There is so much beauty it will numb you to other places very quickly so make it last on your trip to Ireland.
