The Dingle Way - Overview

Blasket Island from Dunmore Head at sunset dingle way Kerry Ireland

The Dingle Way is one of Irelands finest walks in terms of scenery, culture and archaeological heritage. Mountain Ways Ireland recommends walking the route in a clockwise fashion. The looped route which starts in Tralee traces the coastline of The Dingle peninsula for 179 km (111 miles) and ascends 2,900 metres overall.

The terrain is very varied from road to moorland to farmland and rugged clifftop paths. Beach walking makes up a significant part of the way, more than 20 km. With one or two exceptions The Dingle way follows a relatively low-level route but at the same time skirts around some stunning mountain scenery.

The way passes through many villages some of which are active Gaeltacht communities where you can hear the native Gaelic in everyday usage.

Also known as The Kerry Camino, a logbook can be stamped a certain station along the way just like on the Camino de Santiago.

The Dingle Way - Accommodation

Kerry Cow at sunset-dingle way

We understand that a well selected Inn, B&B or guesthouse can make all the difference.

It’s one of the key ingredients that can make a good vacation into a great one.

A welcoming smile, a warm hello and a comfortable bed to take the weight off those feet is what you deserve.

Remember that we are hikers and we only want for you the same value for money standards that we would expect ourselves.

We expect somewhere to dry those boots and gear if they are wet.

Mountain Ways Ireland have carefully selected the accommodations for a range of reasons; it may be their location, their reviews and what other customers tell us, or the all-around local and authentic hospitality.

Wherever possible, rooms are generally en-suite, but if booked out already we will endeavour to have a private bathroom outside your own bedroom.

Just like us at Mountain Ways Ireland, The B&B owners have immense pride in their own businesses.

They love their own areas and will be more than happy to share a few stories or tips (good and bad!) of where to eat or drink. It’s hard to beat local, up to the minute knowledge.
