The Dingle Way – Ireland

Self Guided Walk on the Dingle Way in Ireland

Tour Description

The Dingle Way Map

The Dingle Way is a long distance self guided trail in the South West of Ireland on the Dingle Peninsula. It is 179Km in length and takes approx 8 -9  days to walk. We break the walk up into manageable walking days of approx 15Km – 20Km per day.

The trail is traditionally walked in a clockwise direction around the Peninsula starting in either the town of Tralee or Camp.

This is a wonderful walking trail staying close to the coast all the way around the Peninsula, although it does enter inland from time to time. The Dingle Peninsula sticks out into the Atlantic Ocean so from walk you can get incredible views across its coastline and Islands, such the Blasket or Skellig Islands. The Blasket islands were inhabited up unto recently and the Skelligs was used for the latest Star Wars movie.

The small towns on this trail make it particularly wonderful and its long stretch of fine sandy beaches. The town of Dingle itself is a very special place in Ireland and we highly recommend taking a rest day here along the way. The bright coloured buildings, the small fishing boats at port, the fishing men, unique style of pubs , where you can have your shoes mended while having a pint and listening to music. Then tasting some of the local sea food in one of it’s many fine restaurants, you won’t be sorry to have stopped here.

As well as the town of Dingle there are also other great towns along the way such as Camp, where the famous Irish Explorer “Tom Crean” opened his own pub “The South Pole Inn” after his exploits in Antarctica with Scott and Shackleton. Then there are the Islands to visit such as the Blaskets, where many of Ireland’s most famous Gaeilc speaking writers lived.

The trail is a mix of small roads, country lanes, mountain trails, forest tracks and beaches.

You just decide how many days you wish to walk and we organise everything else for you.
