What You Can Expect

Full Day Tour of The Dingle Peninsula and Slea Head

Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry, Ireland

Meet your coach for mid-morning pickup in central Killarney. Once aboard, sit back and relax as you journey west along Ireland’s rocky Atlantic coast to Dingle Peninsula. Marvel at the majestic landscape dotted with scenes of Irish life, and stop to explore wind-swept beaches, formidable cliffs and unique flora and fauna. Your coach will pass Inch Beach, a favorite location for peace-seeking kite flyers and surfers.

Head into the lovely town of Dingle, where you’ll break to have lunch (own expense), explore the town’s vibrant and colorful streets, and perhaps spot the Fungie, Dingle’s famed local dolphin. Sweets enthusiasts won’t want to miss a stop at Murphy’s for some signature local ice cream!

Afterwards, continue on to Slea Head, the most westerly point in Europe. Along the way, glimpse beehive-shaped huts and life in the Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) communities that line the route. At Slea Head, imagine the excitement that westward emigrants experienced in passing this point, and enjoy wonderful views of the Blasket Islands, a desolate area that was once inhabited by thriving Irish-speaking islanders.

On the return trip to Killarney, your coach will stop at Gallarus Oratory, one of the region’s mysterious archeological gems. Walk through the site that is consider the best-preserved early Christian church in Ireland, and enjoy stunning views of Smerwick Harbor and Mount Brandon. 

Your tour returns to the departure point in Killarney by early evening.

This was a fun day with beautiful scenery. There were only eight of us in a mini-bus which helped a lot. The driver was casual, informative and funny. The weather did not completely cooperate always a factor in Ireland, but the clouds stayed high enough so that the views were not blocked.

Very good guide. It was nice for my sister and I to visit Dingle from a tour perspective, although I'd not been to Gallarus before. The guide gave us some good facts, that were news to me. Would recommend.
