Dingle Peninsula Private Tour from Kenmare
"The ""Slea Head Drive"" is a spectacular scenic route on the Dingle Peninsula in South-West Ireland. A private tour with us is the perfect way to enjoy it. You can be fully in charge of the itinerary . Where do we stop for pictures? Stop here for lunch? for example the Connor Pass.The Dingle peninsula gets is name from the largest town on the peninsula. The peninsula is often called Corca Dhuibhne even by English speaking people. It means ""tribe of Duibhne"". On the peninsula there are two mountain ranges: the Slieve Mish Mountains in the east and another range of mountains in the west that has no name. Mount Brandon is the tallest mountain in Ireland after the peeks of the MacgillyCuddy Reeks outside Killarney.The Connor Pass is an absolute highlight that cannot be missed. It starts j twisting road surrounded by sharp drops and lakes. As such coaches are prohibited from driving this road.Just off the very westernmost point on the peninsula you will find the Blasket Islands. Until the 1950s these islands were inhabited and from Dunquin on the mainland
From EUR56.00
