The Dingle peninsula is our destination, as we explore this dramatic and beautiful region that is littered with archaeological wonders, historical and cultural gems and golden beaches that meet the wild rolling waves of the wild Atlantic Ocean.
Our first stop off is at Inch beach, famous for being the place where an inch is actually three miles long. Heading due west to the edge of Europe, feast your eyes on breathtaking scenery of wild rugged coastline, golden beaches and the magnificent Blasket Islands. We continue our journey around this rich and vibrant peninsulas exploring its vast Gaelic culture and learning a cupla focal (some words) in Irish along the way. We will also visit Dingle town, a picturesque fishing town that is famed for Fungi the dolphin who has been a local for almost 30 years, before making our return journey to Killarney.
