DT Dingle - Dingle & Blasket Island Visitor Centre

From EUR 45

JOIN US ON A MAGNIFICENT TOUR AROUND THE HISTORICAL SETTING OF THE DINGLE PENINSULA. Once described by National Geographic as “the most beautiful place on earth” the peninsula is littered with archaeological and historical sites that are nestled into the breathtakingly beautiful landscape.

Discover a land dotted with majestic views as we take you off the beaten track to explore the dramatic and wild coastline of Slea Head. We will delve into this unique destination as we take a visit to the stunning Blasket Island visitor centre to learn about the extraordinary lives of the talented inhabitants of the island who lived there up until 1953 and their unique Gaelic culture.

We will also visit the vibrant town of Dingle, where you can have lunch and explore its streets, before making our return journey to Killarney.
