VISIT THE WESTERNMOST POINT OF IRELAND
The Dingle Peninsula is located in the southwest of Ireland. Part of the popular Wild Atlantic Way, this County Kerry peninsula juts 48 kilometres (30 miles) into the Atlantic Ocean.
Hikers, photographers and lovers of natural charm are in for a treat here. The Slieve Mish mountain range dominates the rugged headland, creating a striking landscape. Other scenic highlights include Conor Pass and Ireland’s second-highest mountain, Mount Brandon.
But it is Dingle Peninsula’s stunning coastline that magnetically draws people to this remote region. The coast consists of steep sea-cliffs and sandy beaches, and is dotted with charming seaside villages. You can explore these settlements and learn about Irish traditions and culture.
Another highlight of the peninsula is the beautiful Dingle Bay. And if you decide to take a boat trip, you may even encounter Fungi, the ‘Dingle Dolphin’ who famously lives in the area.
All these reasons and more made National Geographic once declare Dingle Peninsula “the most beautiful place on earth”.View County Cork and County Kerry
