& Experiences

There are so many unique things to do and see on the Dingle Peninsula.  Below are three MUST DO activities, but really the only thing TO DO is to get onto the Peninsula to see for yourself. Some things must be planned, like the trip to the Blasket Islands, but otherwise, just drive around the looped road and simply stop where appeals to you.


Stay on The
Blasket Islands

It is a truly unique experience to stay on the Blasket Island, surrounded by spectacular scenery and in one of the most beautiful and untouched locations in Ireland. For me it was the candle light and the silence.
