There is so much to see and do in Dingle. Here are our “What Not to Miss” suggestions.
The Spectacular Scenery
DO NOT miss the Slea Head route, the edge of Europe and some of the most spectacular vistas you will ever see.
For dinner our favorite is Ashe’s, a quick stroll from Harriet’s Cottage at the bottom of Main Street. This gastro pub had a wonderful warm welcoming feel and the best food Dingle has to offer. For lunch you must check out The Goat Street Social Café (a 3 min walk down the street from Harriet’s Cottage), you will not be disappointed. The best burger in Dingle is behind Dick Mack’s at Chewy & The Beast
It’s Pouring Rain, Now What?
Well it never rains in a pub so get bar hopping. Start at Kennedy’s Bar (a 3 min ramble down the street and our favorite Dingle Pub), follow this with a stop in to Dick Mack’s for a small drop and a belt, to Foxy John’s for a pint (and hardware if needed) and finally finish up at the Dingle Whisky Distillery for an entertaining tour. At night take in some great music sessions at many of Dingle’s pubs, see here.
A nice (and not too challenging walk) takes you out to Beenbawn to see Dingle Bay. A little more rigorous, but also more scenic, is to drive to Burnham (10 mins) and walk up to Eask Tower where you will get 360 degree views of the Peninsula (bring your boots).
See the Sea
An exhilarating and unique way to see the Dingle Peninsula coastline and The Blasket Islands is to take the Dingle Sea Safari tour. Beautiful views and possible whale sightings await you.
