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

Bus... Tips (4)

There is Bus Service

I know there is daily bus service because I met someone who had just arrived from Killarny. Ireland isn't well known for an efficient bus system and she was upset about the delays encountered along her journey. She arrived at 9:00PM and the scheduled arrival in Dingle was supposed to have been at 6:30PM.

So at least one bus a day from Killarney, with a scheduled arrival of 6:30PM.

The town of Dingle is small enough that it would be easy to get by without a car. Some great hikes up into the hills as well. But you would miss a lot of the peninsula if you were on foot.

no trains, just public buses

Dingle Town and Dingle peninsula are unfortunately out of the train-system in Ireland. The closest train-station is in Tralee and from there you may take the public Eirean bus #275 that will take you directely to the main street of Dingle - town.
To explore Dngle -peninsula it is best to rent a bike ( everything is quite flat except the Connor-pass of course). The fee for renting a bike is around 10 Euros a day :

No train station in Dingle/Ventry

So if you're in Kerry and want to visit Dingle, which is the main town in this area, you can get bus 275 from Tralee. If you're in another part of Kerry, see if you can rent a car, otherwise you'll have to get the bus to Tralee and make the connection from there.

Bus

The school hired a bus for the weekend, so we chugged our way through West County Limerick, Tralee, Annascaul and then to Dingle and Corca Dhuibhne.
