Dingle Peninsular & Slea Head

ingle enchants every visitor with its rugged rural charms and harbour front. Its fishing community ensures a great supply of fresh produce for the towns fine eateries and bars. And, each September its host to Blas na h’Eireann, the Irish Food Awards, a true reflection of its great seafood producing heritage. After collecting you at your accommodation, we head to the town of Tralee made famous for the Rose Festival, and onwards to the Peninsular road, and the Conor Pass, one of highest mountain passes in Ireland. As we travel on to Dingle Town, we catch glimpses of the vast Atlantic Ocean weather permitting.

On arrival, we spend time exploring the town and harbour views. After lunch we have the option to visit the small artisan ‘Dingle Distillery’, makers of a mighty fine Irish Whiskey, before heading out around Slea Head with its breath-taking views of the Atlantic, its isolated coves and beaches and of course sheer cliff drops. As our circuit continues we stop for photo's and time permitting we call in at the Dingle Sheep Dog demonstration in Fahan.

As we head through Ballyferriter, the road takes us to Dingle and back up the Peninsula, to Annascaul. It’s here we make a rest stop at the South Pole, named by its owner one Antarctic explorer Tom Creen, who sailed three times with Captain Scot and Ernest Shackleton and eventually retired here. The Pub is a shrine to an incredible collection of memorabilia depicting Victorian  exploration.

As we make our return journey don’t forget to ask your Chauffeur what other opportunities this great County offers before heading back to your accommodation.
